After a long day folding Christmas cards on a hot summer's day in the factory, worker Michael Hunt (not his real name) got on his push bike to pedal home.

Within yards of leaving the factory gate he came crashing down. Never one to miss an opportunity, the young man stood up and brushed himself down.

Seeking that annual bonus he never received, Mike turned around and walked the bike back onto the factory premises and re-enacted his "unfortunate fall".

A claim was filed against his bosses the next morning seeking compensation for his "injuries".

The compensation cheque never arrived. It turned out the big brother factory had caught the fall on tape!
