Race in Heels Trips Man on Workers Comp

Mar 25, 8:47 PM (ET)

HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) – Prosecutors say a video shows a Connecticut correction officer running a 40-yard-dash in women’s clothing and high heels – at a time he had claimed he was too injured to work.Garrett A. Dalton of Naugatuck has been charged with workers compensation fraud. He’s accused of taking part in a radio station’s contest for Hannah Montana concert tickets last year. Not only did he have to dress in drag but he had to carry an egg on a spoon.Authorities were alerted after someone saw Dalton in a TV news report. Prosecutors say the 41-year-old collected more than $5,000 in workers’ compensation after he reported a work-related injury in June.Court documents do not list an attorney for Dalton, and his phone number is unlisted. And no, he didn’t win the contest.

OK so yeah, this guy was totally faking everyone out to get workman’s comp. That’s not the part of the story that disturbs me. It’s the fact that the radio station’s genius promotions director came up with the idea to give away Hannah Montana tickets by having people dress in drag and have a foot race in high heels. While balancing an egg on a spoon.

You know. Just like Hannah Montana does.

Dummies.

On my way home from work today I had to stop by TKTS (for those of who you don’t know, that’s a ticketing place in the middle of Times Square). I have to swing by there about once every other shift I work but today was the first time there was soemone there from The Late Show with David Letterman.

“Free tickets to tomorrow’s show,” she was calling out and I was was surprised that no one was crowding around her. I mean come on, it’s freakin’ Letterman!!

I missed my first chance to go see a taping last year, so I was determined not to miss chance #2. I approached her and asked her what time the taping is (I work tomorrow until 3).

She said the taping is at 5:30 (YES!), they start seating at 4:30 (YES!) but you have to check in by 3 at the latest (NO!).

So I missed it. Again. And here’s the kicker. I know, I just KNOW, tomorrow is going to be a slow day at work and they’re going to say “Hey Ed, you can go home early” and I’m going to be bitter.

So, no one tell me who’s on Letterman tomorrow. I don’t want to know what I missed. Unless it’s like Burt Reynolds. Then it’s all good.
