Like a Boss

 When it comes to loafing on the job, no one can top the Italians, not even MDOT employees. The BBC reported:

A hospital employee in Italy has been accused of skipping work on full pay for 15 years, local media report.

The man is alleged to have stopped turning up to work at the Ciaccio hospital in the southern city of Catanzaro in 2005.

He is now being investigated for fraud, extortion and abuse of office, Italian news agency Ansa reports.

He was reportedly paid €538,000 (£464,000) in total over the years he is thought not to have been working.

Six managers at the hospital are also being investigated in connection with the alleged absenteeism.

The arrests are the result of a lengthy police investigation into absenteeism and suspected fraud in the Italian public sector.

The employee was a civil servant, and was assigned to a job in the hospital in 2005. It was at this point he stopped going into work, the police said.

The police have also accused him of threatening his manager to stop her from filing a disciplinary report against him.

That manager later retired, police added, and his ongoing absence was never noticed by her successor or human resources. BBC story.

Like a boss.

Nice work if you can get it!

This guy was obviously too honest to hold a government job. He had an unnecessary job so he just stayed home rather than play the game. Most bureaucrats understand that they are useless but they "make work" and show up for work so they can keep getting paid. This is the kind of guy who makes other government workers really mad. All he had to do was show up and sleep. The question is now whether they will eliminate this guy's unnecessary job or hire somebody else to "do his work".

C'mon man, don't sell MDOT employees short. I've seen them pull some amazing stunts.

It’s called a no show job. The mafia does it all the time.

A crew of MDOT showed up at the jobsite one time and realized they had forgotten all f the shovels. The Supervisor panicked and ran into the woods. He returned with 8 sticks he had found and advised the workers to lean on these while he went and got the shovels.

I am not an Mdot employee, but I don’t agree with the shade you cast on them. They have a tough job to keep our roads open with a budget that has diminished over the last 30 years.

Hell I've been paying FICA and SSA for over 40 years and still a no show.

MDOT is facing a huge layoff. The Japanese invented a shovel that can stand up by itself.

Not really loafing, straight up organized crime theft.

You have to put in the effort to report for work before the loafing can start. If they are not showing up it's not a no show job.

My shovels stand up all by themselves after I soak the handles in Viagra.

Absolutely !

The rank and file of MDOT do one hell of a job every day.

Hell ... I was a manager in a different Sate Agency . . . and could only dream of having staff such as MDOT employees.

While those guys & girls were risking their life in all kinds of weather on I-55, my employees were trying to cook their personal Thanksgiving dinners in the damn break room. ( to save $4.77 off their home electric bill)

I raised Hell, but was told there was nothing that could be done, for fear of a damn EEOC complaint.

Sorry to digress, but it pisses me off when I hear idiots talking about MDOT employees.

The Pharisee stood by himself and prayed: ‘God, I thank you that I am not like other people—robbers, evildoers, adulterers—or even like this (MDOT employee).'

Nice website you got here, Kingfish. Be real shame if something happened to it. ;)

@6:24. I worked in an MDOT project office, MDOT roadway design downtown, and now I deal with MDOT daily. It’s bloated and inefficient. There are some good folks working there, but plenty who do nothing. And the good ones don’t put in the hours. I worked in Roadway design downtown on a 7:00 to 4:00 schedule in the 90’s. I would go in at 7:00 and leave about 6:00. After a week, i was asked by Wendell Ruff not to do that. I was told to leave at 4:00 like I was supposed to. I wasn’t rewarded or praised. Instead I was told I was creating a problem by working late.

Trollfest '09

Trollfest '07 was such a success that Jackson Jambalaya will once again host Trollfest '09. Catch this great event which will leave NE Jackson & Fondren in flames. Othor Cain and his band, The Black Power Structure headline the night while Sonjay Poontang returns for an encore performance. Former Frank Melton bodyguard Marcus Wright makes his premier appearance at Trollfest singing "I'm a Sweet Transvestite" from "The Rocky Horror Picture Show." Kamikaze will sing his new hit, “How I sold out to da Man.” Robbie Bell again performs: “Mamas, don't let your babies grow up to be Bells” and “Any friend of Ed Peters is a friend of mine”. After the show, Ms. Bell will autograph copies of her mug shot photos. In a salute to “Dancing with the Stars”, Ms. Bell and Hinds County District Attorney Robert Smith will dance the Wango Tango.

Wrestling returns, except this time it will be a Battle Royal with Othor Cain, Ben Allen, Kim Wade, Haley Fisackerly, Alan Lange, and “Big Cat” Donna Ladd all in the ring at the same time. The Battle Royal will be in a steel cage, no time limit, no referee, and the losers must leave town. Marshand Crisler will be the honorary referee (as it gives him a title without actually having to do anything).


Meet KIM Waaaaaade at the Entergy Tent. For five pesos, Kim will sell you a chance to win a deed to a crack house on Ridgeway Street stuffed in the Howard Industries pinata. Don't worry if the pinata is beaten to shreds, as Mr. Wade has Jose, Emmanuel, and Carlos, all illegal immigrants, available as replacements for the it. Upon leaving the Entergy tent, fig leaves will be available in case Entergy literally takes everything you have as part of its Trollfest ticket price adjustment charge.

Donna Ladd of The Jackson Free Press will give several classes on learning how to write. Smearing, writing without factchecking, and reporting only one side of a story will be covered. A donation to pay their taxes will be accepted and she will be signing copies of their former federal tax liens. Ms. Ladd will give a dramatic reading of her two award-winning essays (They received The Jackson Free Press "Best Of" awards.) "Why everything is always about me" and "Why I cover murders better than anyone else in Jackson".

In the spirit of helping those who are less fortunate, Trollfest '09 adopts a cause for which a portion of the proceeds and donations will be donated: Keeping Frank Melton in his home. The “Keep Frank Melton From Being Homeless” booth will sell chances for five dollars to pin the tail on the jackass. John Reeves has graciously volunteered to be the jackass for this honorable excursion into saving Frank's ass. What's an ass between two friends after all? If Mr. Reeves is unable to um, perform, Speaker Billy McCoy has also volunteered as when the word “jackass” was mentioned he immediately ran as fast as he could to sign up.


In order to help clean up the legal profession, Adam Kilgore of the Mississippi Bar will be giving away free, round-trip plane tickets to the North Pole where they keep their bar complaint forms (which are NOT available online). If you don't want to go to the North Pole, you can enjoy Brant Brantley's (of the Mississippi Commission on Judicial Performance) free guided tours of the quicksand field over by High Street where all complaints against judges disappear. If for some reason you are unable to control yourself, never fear; Judge Houston Patton will operate his jail where no lawyers are needed or allowed as you just sit there for minutes... hours.... months...years until he decides he is tired of you sitting in his jail. Do not think Judge Patton is a bad judge however as he plans to serve free Mad Dog 20/20 to all inmates.

Trollfest '09 is a pet-friendly event as well. Feel free to bring your dog with you and do not worry if your pet gets hungry, as employees of the Jackson Zoo will be on hand to provide some of their animals as food when it gets to be feeding time for your little loved one.

Relax at the Fox News Tent. Since there are only three blonde reporters in Jackson (being blonde is a requirement for working at Fox News), Megan and Kathryn from WAPT and Wendy from WLBT will be on loan to Fox. To gain admittance to the VIP section, bring either your Republican Party ID card or a Rebel Flag. Bringing both and a torn-up Obama yard sign will entitle you to free drinks served by Megan, Wendy, and Kathryn. Get your tickets now. Since this is an event for trolls, no ID is required. Just bring the hate. Bring the family, Trollfest '09 is for EVERYONE!!!

This is definitely a Beaver production.

Dr. Heddy Matthias and Lori Gregory will face off in the undercard dueling with dangling participles and other um, devices. Robbie Bell will perform Her two latest songs: My Best Friends are in the Media and Mama's, Don't Let Your Babies Grow up to be George Bell. Sid Salter of The Clarion-Ledger will host "Pin the Tail on the Trial Lawyer", sponsored by State Farm.
