Worker who was accidentally paid 300 times his salary takes the money and runs
What would you do if you checked your bank account and found you had mistakenly been paid 300 times your normal salary?
Well, one employee who discovered he had been paid nearly £150,000 for a month’s work instead of the usual £450 decided to duck and run.
A worker in Chile submitted his resignation and could not be found after his job accidentally paid him about 330 times his salary because of a payroll error, according to reports. The unnamed staff member at Consorcio Industrial de Alimentos in Chile did initially raise the eye-watering overpayment for May with his manager who then flagged it to HR.
He agreed to return the cash and promised to go to the bank the following day. But instead of giving it back, the man withdrew it and hasn’t been seen since.
His employer Consorcio tried to make contact with the man over the next three days but to no avail, according to local media outlet Diario Financiero.
They later received contact from the unnamed man’s lawyers who informed Consorcio that the man had resigned from his position with the company.
After no sign of contact, bosses at the company decided to file a complaint with law officials charging the man with misappropriation of fund.
The average take home pay in Chile is £750 a month, £300 more than the unnamed man was receiving.
A 24-year-old woman was arrested for smoking in the lavatory of a Bengaluru-bound flight.

She was caught smoking inside the lavatory of IndiGo flight number 6E 716 late on Sunday night. The plane took off from Kolkata at 9.50 pm and landed in Bengaluru more than three hours later. The flight crew suspected that Priyanka was smoking in the lavatory, and made her open the door. The cigarette was found in the dustbin. 'Unruly passenger' The crew poured water into the dustbin, and the flight captain declared Priyanka an 'unruly passenger.' Image generated using DALL·E Co-passengers were aghast to learn the unruly lady was traveling to preside over an International Women's Day celebration. “More power to women,” quipped a fellow passenger, drawing chuckles during the serious standoff.

Lessons from the story about Bangalore Techie being extorted - Let’s use social media judiciously to help those in need I was fascinated to see a thread of complaint posted by @vpatilav , a 22 year old intern from Himachal Pradesh who tweeted about being extorted by a couple of cops. His Twitter thread explained how he was illegally detained and extorted by cops while returning home after a late-night shift. The two cops on night duty allegedly planted a small twig of ganja (marijuana) in the youth’s bag and threatened to implicate him in a drug related case. They asked for cash in return for ‘letting him go.’ The techie paid them about Rs 2,500 before he could walk away. The distraught techie took to social media the next day and the story blew up on Reddit (thread) and elsewhere. What was intriguing was that @vpatilav , abruptly deleted the thread saying “Police was looking into the matter.” This led to speculation that he was being harassed for “falsely” accusing cops. Dear
The other day, I came across the story of a 21-year-old boy, Sanjay, who had hanged himself from the ceiling fan in his room after his Australian student visa application was rejected. This story highlights the deep-rooted aspiration among a segment of middle class that wants to leave Indian shores. And sometimes the price to pay for it is simply too high. Many Indian youth feel that going abroad is a way to escape the intense competition for jobs and career opportunities in India. The sheer number of youngsters graduating from high-schools aspiring for a limited number of seats in the professional educational institutions filters out a large percentage of students. The reservation policies adopted and enhanced by successive governments at central and state levels further exacerbate this sense of anguish when youth from “general merit” category is planning for their future. It starts with reservation for college and professional courses and continues through filtering for career o
