When I read this story I had to laugh...
This is taken from the Jamaica Gleaner. They even had a snop shot of superman.. lol!


Members of Parliament's Public Accounts Committee (PAC) yesterday were stunned after being told by an executive of the tax Administration Services Department (TASD) that there was an employee who

worked 22 hours each day, consecutively for nearly two weeks.



This would convert to 286 hours over a 13-day period.
Committee members were visibly annoyed when the auditor general first pointed out that the man had submitted a claim for working 24 hours successively for 13 days.
Members left dumbstruck
But what left the committee members dumbstruck was the revelation that the employee was paid $50,886 after his claim was checked and approved by the accounts department.
"Nobody can do that, so we need proper justification. You can't just take out two hours out of the 24 and leave 22 for 13 days; it is impossible," committee member Everald Warmington said.
He argued that it was an insult to the committee for the TASD to provide such an explanation.
His colleague, Andrew Gallimore, was sarcastic, contending that if a person were given a job to sleep 22 hours for 13 days, he could not accomplish it.
Commissioner of the TASD, Grace Rookwood, told the PAC that her department made a bad decision in allowing the employee to work for such an extended period.
At least one committee member labelled the employee "superman", noting that he had accomplished a "marathon workathon".
