next time, he will just call in sick.

What would you do if you didn't want to go to work for a few days?
  1. tell the boss the truth and ask for the time off
  2. pretend you had a cold or the flu and call in sick
  3. tell the boss there was an illness in your family
  4. have a friend shoot you in the shoulder and then file a false police report
A few people would take the first option.
Perhaps more would take the second and third options.
No one would be stupid enough to choose the last option.

Well, almost no one.

Daniel Kuch of Pasco, WA wanted to get some time off from his job (and avoid a potential blood test). So, he hatched a scheme of spectacular idiocy: He asked one of his friends to shoot him.

The friend was only too happy to help (hey, what are friends for??). With a simple pull on the trigger, he blew a hole in Kuch's shoulder. Then, the bleeding Kuch called the police and filed a report claiming that he had been the victim of a drive-by shooting.

Apparently, his story wasn't very convincing. Within a short time, Mr. Kuch admitted to setting the whole thing up. He was charged with filing a false report (and reported to a hospital). Kuch's friend was arrested for reckless endangerment.

The good news is that Kuch is probably going to get more than a few days off. (And the blood test he was afraid of? Well, he got one of those, too.)
