@deanimator - Classic old joke.... groan (not moan)
What I liked about the case was that there were just so many ways for the guy not to get fired, but he managed to avoid all of them.
If he wanted to go on a bender and pick up hookers, he could easily have gone somewhere else in the first place, then he could have just paid her, then he could have come clean with his boss and said he made a mistake / was under pressure / needed counselling etc.
It's just a long, long list of stupidity. Plus, he was the bank VP and must have known that they had security cameras running :doh:
It's pretty hard to get fired in Canada - about 95% of the court cases I read about rule in favour of the employee.
