| A young South African was on Monday fined by a local court for playing hooky from work and trying to cover it with a fake gynaecologist's certificate attesting he was pregnant and needed a week off.
A magistrate's court in Vereeniging, near Johannesburg, fined 27-year-old Charles Sibindana R1 000 for the brazen forgery, the South African Press Association news agency reported.
Sibindana stole a medical certificate from a health centre used by his pregnant girlfriend but was apparently unaware that only women consulted gynaecologists.
Magistrate Bruno van Eeden jokingly warned Sibindana "not to walk around faking sick letters from gynaecologists". -- AFP

| Many years ago, whilst training, I was on a female psycho-geriatric unit. The ward sister had been shoved there because she was coming up to retirement and she couldn't cause too many problems there.
One day a patient was complaining about difficulty in passing urine. Joyce (a nurse of over 35 years experience) called a doctor to the ward and, in all seriousness, asked "Do you think it might be her prostate, Doctor?", which earned her a few stares.
She was very quickly found a 'very important job', that only 'someone of her capabilities' could carry out for the few months until she retired.
