Thought For The Day

I read today about the Spanish civil servant whose long term absence from work had gone unnoticed. It was said that he had not been in for “at least” six years. It only came to light when he became eligible for a long service award.

I do love irony.

    • Spanish newspapers have dubbed him “el funcionario fantasma” – the phantom official. He has now officially retired, whilst trying to overturn a fine imposed upon him. Family said he did go in, though not for the full hours, saying he had devoted himself to learning about philosophy.
      Something to pass the time, then.
