Until recently, Carles Recio was a hard-working archives director employed by the Spanish government, or was he?
It turns out that for more than a decade, Carles didn’t work at all despite coming to work bright and early every morning and not checking out until quitting time. But it appears his main job function was to bugger off for all the hours in-between.
After his keen-eyed colleagues finally noticed he was seldom at his post, this supreme slacker was finally sacked, though unsurprisingly unapologetic.
But this being the public sector, hope abounds, for while Carles is currently out of a job, he can re-apply for another government job in nine years.
After all, a lifetime ban for pilfering a decade’s worth of tax dollars would be a tad too harsh.
