A man has officially quit his job after he was mistakenly paid 286 times his normal salary in Chile. The unidentified man was said to work for the Consorcio Industrial de Alimentos (Cial) and in May he received nearly $1,77,356.20 (165,398,851 Chilean pesos). However, his initial monthly income is $536.15 (500,000 pesos). As soon as his employer noticed the error, they contacted him and the employee apparently promised to return the remaining amount the next day.
“He was informed and clarified that this money did not correspond to payment for any service,” Chilean legal documents said, according on the Chilean financial news website Diario Financiero.

But he did not come to the office and also ignored the company call, SMS and WhatsApp. Then, on June 2, he officially resigned from his position through his lawyer. His employer is now said to have taken legal action against the man. No one has yet been taken into custody.
This bizarre case drew a lot of eyeballs online with one user tweeting, “Good man 😄.” The second user noted, “Morally, of course, it’s theft, but I like that banks get their reward once in a while.” The third asked, “How do you ‘disappear without a trace’ in the modern world?” “Go to Bolivia. No extradition either if necessary,” said the fourth user.
good man 😄

In contrast, an American Burger King staff member received a minimal goodie bag for his 27 years of working without any days off. But his daughter set him up a GoFundMe so he could travel to meet his grandkids. The fundraiser reportedly received $299,021 against the goal of $270,000, leaving Kevin Ford extremely emotional. “I just can’t believe it. Thank you, thank you all. I just want to say to everyone, thank you for every penny,” he said on the Today show.
