Man Stabs Himself So He Doesn't Have To Work At Blockbuster

Blockbuster must be a very unpleasant place to work, because police say a Colorado man stabbed himself and blamed “three skinheads or Hispanic males dressed in black.” (Really.) According to the cops, the guy eventually admitted that he stabbed himself so he wouldn’t have to go to work.

Here’s the thing. If you don’t want to go to work, this is not the excuse to use — A) Because you have to stab yourself, and B) because nobody argues with the word “diarrhea” and they certainly do not go review security camera footage.

From ABC 7 in Denver:

Investigators reviewed surveillance video taken at a nearby business that failed to show an attack where [the Blockbuster guy] claimed it had happened.

[The Blockbuster guy] was re-interviewed by detectives who said he finally admitted he stabbed himself because he didn’t want to go to work.
