Job too boring
Frederic Desnard, who worked as a manager at a Parisian perfumery until 2015, sued his former employer because his job was so boring that it made him depressed and forced him to quit. Last week, after four years of litigation, 48-year-old Desnard won his case, and a compensation of $45,000. Paris's appeals court ruled that Frederic Desnard suffered from "bore out", which is technically the opposite of burnout, where an employee is overworked. The former manager's lawyer claimed that the complete lack of stimulation at work had left the man feeling "destroyed" and "ashamed", even triggering an epileptic fit when he was driving."I went into depression," Desnard told AFP. "I was ashamed to be paid to do nothing. The worse part of it was denying this suffering." Desnard said that he was asked to do nothing but menial tasks over the course of four years, an experience he described as "a descent into hell". These tasks allegedly involved setting up the CEO's new tablet and letting a plumber into his boss's home.

Kids are weird
