The Karma of Calling In Sick When You’re Not

Michael Charles Mitty, 32, decided he would call in sick to work last week and, “stay home, play video games and drink,” as he described it.  Unfortunately he did way too little of the first part and way too much of the last.

Mitty was found inside a telemarketing business just after 7am by police after the company reported a burglary.  It seems that in the course of his video game filled day of hooky, Mitty consumed so much booze that he became “extremely intoxicated” and make the choice to go drive around in his car.  After doing that for a while he decided he was too drunk, and hungry, so he stopped randomly in the parking lot of the telemarketing business, found an unlocked door and entered.  Once inside he found a vending machine that he broke into to get something to eat, but in the process cut himself leaving blood all over his person and all over the conference room and a corner office he’d wandered into.

Mitty was arrested and charged with felony third-degree burglary, which carries a maximum penalty of five years in prison and a $10,000 fine.
