  1. Default Unemployed man cuts off foot to continue claiming jobless benefits


    Only to discover he is still eligible for work...

    The 56-year-old put his hacked off foot in oven so medics could not reattach it

    This is why welfare programs need a major overhaul.

    Wasn't there an article posted here about someone winning the lottery ($1 million+?) and still checking in welfare?

    No sympathy from me. Why someone would cause a permanent, painful, and costly expense to his life when he's already on unemployment is beyond me.

    Can you imagine walking around the house with your foot severed and in your hand? That would be horrifying. Not to mention he willfully burned his foot so it couldn't be reattached. This guy needs serious counseling if he thought this would be an appropriate response.

    EDIT: Also, there are plenty of office jobs one can do without a foot. You don't need a foot to be in a call center or work most sales positions.

    They say he still qualifies for some work... physically, maybe.
    Would YOU like to be his assigned employer?

    Well, considering what I know about his personality now, definitely not. But a recruiter that doesn't know only cares about two things: (1) Can the person fulfill all of the job requirements despite the disability, and (2) is it an undue hardship on the business. For most office or clerical jobs, no foot is no issue.

  11. Default Re: Unemployed man cuts off foot to continue claiming jobless benefits


    Honestly, if I ran into this case I would probably do everything I could to find him a job, only because he thought he could get around the system and continue to not work. Like Fiel said, there's plenty of Office jobs and jobs that do not require you to walk around.

    This guy is practically an insult to everyone. He's an insult to people who work their asses off every single day, only to give him money through unemployment services, and he's an insult to everyone who actually has serious disabilities that truly stop them from working. This guy is just lazy, and he wanted to stay that way. Too bad buddy, get back to work.

    He sure is going to get booted from every job he tries to get a foot in.

    I'm stuck wondering if the pay offered by the job was actually LESS that what he gets from unemployment, and possibly not even enough to support his household. Thus prompting such a drastic action.

    There's two sides to every story.

    i'm waiting for him to lose the arm too, then we can make "cost him an arm and a leg" jokes.

    seanny may be right though, we only have the newspaper part of it

    Trying to imagine what a severed foot would smell like when cooked in an oven.


    I'd hire him as my bellhop.
    Or he could enlist in the army and be a foot soldier...
    Yeah, i'm out of foot related jokes.

    That must have made him hopping mad.
    @Razmos Probably like pork.

    I guess you could say he got... Cold Feet.

    Lol, my mum told me about this.. I couldn't believe it til I read about it myself.
    Being unemployed myself i know there are people who try so hard to avoid employment, but this takes the retard cake.

    I hope he gets a job, either that or he gets his benefits removed.

    Time to look for the foot joke skit in Family Guy. "I'm sure you'll like the taste of hops---ohhh..."

    I wish I remembered what episode that's from. I know it's one of the newer ones, but if I had a clearer memory of it I'd grab it and link it.


    Maybe, but I'm not sure how much you can skew cutting off your own foot and putting it in the oven. You could claim that it was an accident...but then how did the foot end up in the oven? That doesn't just happen, and feet don't teleport.
