Darby requested via email a free five-night stay for her and her boyfriend at a hotel in Ireland. Instead of paying the hotel, she would give the business "exposure" - the hotel owner was certainly having none of that and replied to her with a snarky email, which he has since published online. He even went on to ban all social media influencers from his places of business.
Do you think the hotel owner's response was fair or did it go too far? Let us know in the comments!
Hate your job? Have you considered just not going most of the time?
Apparently, Joaquín García, a 69-year-old Spanish civil servant has been doing just that for the last six years. He was fined $30,000 for not showing up to work when officials finally found out in the process of awarding him for 20 years of service.
García claims that he did show up to work every day but often left because there was no work to do. He was afraid that if he mentioned it to anyone he would lose his job without being able to find another one. So, instead of explaining his situation, he continued collecting his paycheck and started studying philosophy in his unofficial early retirement.
