BBC NEWS is reporting this morning about how closely government workers are monitored:

“A tax office official in Finland who died at his desk went unnoticed by up to 30 colleagues for two days.
The man in his 60s died last Tuesday while checking tax returns, but no-one realised he was dead until Thursday.”

Several others followed this story as well, this morning… Apparently, there were 30 other workers in this office… and nobody noticed for two whole days that this guy’s nap was a bit longer than usual, or that his productivity was a bit off.

The Austrailian papers are suggesting that his co-workers were off at meetings, and so didn’t notice, thinking he was silently working on tax returns.

All of them? For two days?

Only in government….
