Dead Man Sat at Desk for Five Days

Here's another indication that the recession may be slowing things down inthe workplace: A man sat at his desk for 5 days before his fellow officeworkers noticed he was dead.

George Turklebaum, a 51 year old proof reader, suffered a fatal heart attackat a New York firm of medical publishers. Since he was such a quiet worker,none of the 23 other people in his office noticed he was dead. His boss,Elliot Wachiaski, said, "George was always the first guy in each morning andthe last to leave at night, so no one found it unusual that he was in thesame position all that time and didn't say anything. He was always absorbedin his work and kept to himself."
