GERMANY: Falling asleep on the job could cost millions — and another colleague his job. Just ask one tremendously tired German bank employee who fell asleep on his keyboard and accidently transferred $293 million dollars into an account where it didn’t belong. The bank immediately corrected the error but fired the employee’s colleague who let the mistake slip by.Talk about a bad day at work.
The 48-year old colleague sued for fallacious firing and won. The court ruling: Give the man his job back! No word on whether cat-napping Ned was also canned.
