Just Report Sick Stupid

As a gamer myself, I can understand the need gamers have to just keep on playing. Ignoring food, sleep and work, we all just want to continue. I’ve once played till 5am in the morning so believe men when I say I understand.

However, there are some things you just should not do (even for gaming). On the top of that (short) list is…reporting your own kidnapping! As insane, crazy and ridiculous as it sounds, that’s what happened in China.

A recent Chinese college graduate named Liu was tired after a night spent gaming with his girlfriend in an internet cafĂ©. As he didn’t want to work, he showed up at work looking shaken and wearing only his underwear. He told his co-workers an incredible story; he had been grabbed outside his apartment, shoved into a van, robbed, and eventually dumped into a ditch.

Needless to say, his coworkers immediately reported the fake robbery and kidnapping to police who quickly uncovered the truth. Liu was promptly arrested and is currently being detained on charges of filing a false police report.

So let this be a lesson to all gamers out there; next time you want to escape going to work…just report sick. 

P.S; this goes for the upcoming World Cup as well.
