An Austrian man was reportedly so desperate to avoid going to work that he sawed his own foot off.
The unemployed 56-year-old was due to attend the labor office to check whether he was fit to return to work.
It's been said that just before his appointment in Styria, he held his leg against a saw and severed his foot just above the ankle.
But it doesn't end there. Before calling for an ambulance the now hopping gent threw his detatched foot into an oven.
Unsurprisingly doctors were unable to reattach the foot.
