Here is a short but impressively stupid story out of Canada. Somehow, I can believe this really happened.
In December 2003 Yves Julien worked a regular 11-hour shift plus overtime all at premium pay for the Canada Border Services Agency and then demanded an additional $9 (Cdn) for a sandwich he had purchased when asked to put in the extra hours. The agency said he was not entitled by contract because the overtime was already at premium pay. In September 2008 after nearly five years of multiple reviews hair-splitting legal decisions and lengthy appeals Julien won his $9.
