An electrician from Western Australia has been sacked following a scheme to skip work using a Twisties Packet so that he could go play golf! The 60 year old used the packet to cover his work device’s GPS tracker. Using the foil Twisties packet, which acted like a “Faraday cage”, blocking electromagnetic fields, the man played golf instead of working.
An anonymous tip-off revealed that he had been playing golf on the job for over two years! Although it could not be proven, it was claimed that the man played golf over 140 times during work hours. The Fair Work Commission found the man to be fairly fired.
The lengths some people go to play this great game hey!
