Moron of the Week Award #13

November 6, 2009 by admncc

Congratulations to Aaron Siebers of Denver, Colorado for being this week’s award-winner.  And thanks to Leo Nevoli for bringing this story to my attention.

According to an article by The Smoking Gun, Siebers was arrested by the Edgewater, Colorado Police on November 2nd for concocting quite an interesting story.  Siebers, “a Blockbuster employee, was skateboarding when he fell and ripped his uniform pants.”  Siebers was scheduled to work that night and was “concerned about getting “written up” by Blockbuster superiors for not wearing his work-issued khakis.”

So Siebers “stabbed himself in the leg and showed up at work claiming to have just been attacked.”  He had a “deep wound in one leg and several other minor cuts on his face and stomach.”  Police then began a search for his assailants…

He didn’t want to lose his job, so he stabbed himself…  Aaron!  Hello!  Have you ever heard of calling in sick?  And come on, is Blockbuster really that stringent…

    What a dumb@$%!

  2. Jack Ryan says:

    I must say that that is one of the most creative ways to get out of work. Definately deserves the moron of the week award, and should be in the running for the annual award!!

  3. Deb says:

    The dude was born to wear orange.

  4. Candice says:

    Uhhhhhh. I think Blockbuster may need a stricter hiring process.

  5. Is it possible to remove him from the gene pool?

  6. Tallelf says:

    Perhaps they have a real strict attendance policy that he didn’t want to get fired.

  7. NeoConDon says:

    Tallelf has a point…maybe this guy couldn’t miss any more days since we’re dealing with a 10% unemployment rate, and a 17% unemployment rate when you factor the people who have given up that he felt he needed to have a good reason to miss a day of work. If you people think this is a typical recession, you’re wrong. We’re heading for the worst depression we’ve ever seen..courtesy of His Royal Highness, King Barry the Great, the Tyrant-in-Chief…

  8. Mike N says:

    Don, you just can’t resist. You’re such a tool. You whine and cry about the unemployment rate when you contribute nothing to the American economy. Get a job loser. If the world were just, you’d be in an orange jumpsuit too.

  9. NeoConDon says:

    …don’t need a job Libby…jealous?

  10. Tallelf says:

    NCD… I applaud that you get to stay at home while your other half provides for the family. My wife does the same thing. I am not saying that it is a bad thing, actually I aspire to switch roles but in the current market it would be tough to do so. You must remember that we are almost out of the “Bushes” before you go blasting King Barry. Not saying no stones be cast, because there are NO PERFECT POLITICIANS, or political views.

  11. Dan says:

    I nominate NCD for moron of the week.

  12. C. Princess says:

    I guess this means he won’t be named Employee Of The Month” anytime soon.

    I think it’s safe to assume he’s sustained head injuries in the past to concoct an idiotic story and then cause harm to himself.

  13. These people think way too hard at all the wrong times…

  14. MikeE says:

    how about going to work and if need be offering to buy new pants?!?!?!?!?!?

  15. NeoConDon says:

    I think you’re wrong TallElf…Liberalism and progressivism are clearly wrong political views. They have NEVER worked, ever. Conservatism works every time it’s tried…EVERY TIME.

  16. tera says:

    Ha! I work at 911…sounds like a lot of my callers. The world is being overrun by idiots and politicians. Wait, they’re the same thing? OMG. We’re screwed!

  17. Extreme John says:

    Wow what a moron. That might have to be your Moron of the Year right there.

  18. MajorLeague09 says:

    Whatever happened to telling the truth. When I used to work, I would keep a bag a back-up clothes in my car. Just in case something happened, I would be ready. The smart thing would be to wear non-work pants while skateboarding to work, then change once you get there.

  19. Just like at McDonald’s its completely obvious a functioning brain isn’t required to work at Blockbusters. Wow.

  20. I was just thinking about this and telling my hubby about it and decided I’m going to post this on my Facebook pages.
