A South African man has been fined $140 for taking a week off work, telling his employers he was pregnant.Charles Sibindana, 27, stole a certificate from a clinic during his pregnant girlfriend's checkup, a court near Johannesburg heard.He then added his own details to the note and submitted it and took seven days off work, seemingly unaware that only women consult gynaecologists.His employers became suspicious and investigated the matter.On passing sentence Magistrate Bruno Van Eeden warned Mr Sibindana "not to walk around faking sick letters from gynaecologists" as if he was pregnant, the South African Press Association news agency reported.
When people are allowed to cheat in this context, they go on simulating to extreme levels. Maybe there is a secret feeling of being so smart in doing so. Afterall, they could have easily missed it in the piles of documents to be processed.
