The Reel Life

16 September 2010

The Reel Life has sometimes used our "sick time" to stay home and play the online slots. However, we've never left evidence of our sick time use online. A Pennsylvania firefighter wasn't as smart.

According to the Of the Morning Call newspaper, an Allentown firefighter was fired after a city-hired private investigator caught him playing golf on days he called out sick. Richard G. Gawlik Jr. played three separate rounds of golf on three different courses during three "sick days."

Records show that Gawlik, who has a nine-handicap, played 20 rounds of golf in August. He had been a firefighter since 1995.

Allentown mayor Ed Pawlowski said "Sick leave is clearly not vacation time. You can't call out sick and go out and play golf."

According to the article, "Gawlik posted his scores on his profile on the Web site and even played at the city's golf course, where he paid for a round of golf with his credit card, according to a source familiar with the investigation.

"His electronic profile on shows he shot 86 at Allentown Municipal Golf Course on Aug. 17. He shot 78 at Rich Maiden Golf Course near Fleetwood, Berks County, on Aug. 18 and 95 at Silver Creek Country Club in Hellertown on Aug. 19."

After reading this article, The Reel Life promises to be even more discreet when taking our sick time (we hope our bosses aren't reading this).
