If you’re looking for the apex of ingenuity, look no further than the lengths that many will go to weasel out of work. Tom Colella of Perth, Australia is out of a job because he got a little too clever for his own good. The electrician found a way to disable his firm’s employee tracking. Once he had hacked the babysitting software, he played golf.

A lot of golf. 140 rounds.

His “hack” to silence the tracking device? Stuffing it in an empty chip bag.

Ok, so maybe the employer could have been a little more diligent in their methods. Colella was eventually ratted out by someone in the company, meaning he could have gotten away with it longer if it weren’t for a snitch.

Maybe someone will see a resourceful asset in Colella in his next interview. Or maybe they’ll just see a really, really bad employee who just wants to be paid to play golf. Good luck out there, you beautiful bastard.
