  1. My nephew recently told me of what his best friend did. in the 1970’s both of them worked at an Italian restaurant. My nephew’s friend confided that he purposely set a fire at that restaurant so he could get unemployment and have some time off. He apparently was careful enough not to have gotten caught. Back then unemployment was really generous. And the story goes that when the restaurant was rebuilt and ready to go my nephews friend made a fake medical excuse so he could max out the unemployment before he had to get back to work at that eatery. He wanted the max time off. I don’t know if I can believe all that is true, but that guy was on drugs a lot back then
