Shmuck of the Week: The Blockbuster Stabber
We've all been there: Stuck in a job we hate, dreading showing up for even another day. There are ways to grin and bear it, but sometimes that isn't enough. Sometimes you know just showing up will break you, and you've gotta stay away for a day.
There are plenty of decent ways to pull that off. Stabbing yourself is not one of them.
But, wouldn't you know it, that's what Aaron Siebers opted to do this week when faced with yet another day spent restocking Mad Men at Blockbuster.
Police first received a call that Siebers had been stabbed by some skinheads in Edgewater. But after further questioning, Siebers admitted that he'd stabbed himself to get out of work at Blockbuster, despite the fact that ten percent of America would stab themselves just to get a job.

The incident raises serious questions, mainly this one: Blockbuster is still in business? Also: Why didn't Siebers claim swine flu, or a broken-down car, or a psychological inability to watch one more customer rent Blue Chips while Casablanca sits idly on the shelf? Whatever the reason, it's not good enough. So Siebers is our Shmuck of the Week.
