    He should have worked at Yahoo. Then people would be picketing the Internet for his right to wrestle sharks.

    That's what you get for jumping the shark.

    It seems clear that work-related stress exists. What's the normal prescription to treat it? I'd have to think the first thing on the list is not working. We'll never know now, but my thought is that the company would've found something for which to fire him no matter what he did.

    Of course it exists, n_w. Having a job is stressful. Unless you get to "work" from home.

    Well, it's fairly stupid if you don't clear it with your employer first.

    The guy's from Wales, and he pops up on TV in Australia while he's out sick.

    Yeah, normally you think of shark-wrestlers as more detail-oriented and better planners than that.

    What if he brought a note from his doctor that the best cure for work-related stress was to go to the beach?

    Company claims he wasn't fired because of the Australian incident, but because of other issues:

    My guess is that people who take off for work-related stress and proceed to spend their time wrestling sharks have many issues.
