It is rocket science

A UK rocket scientist is to sue his employers for unfair dismissal it has been reported today.

Mr George Slackboldy has registered a complaint against his employers in London claiming that they kept confusing him when he made mistakes.

"Every time I did something wrong they kept saying to me - 'Why do you keep messing up - it's not rocket science!'. Well, I was under the impression that it was so in the end I got so confused I didn't know what I was doing."

Mr Slackboldy goes on to claim that this confusion led to post traumatic stress, depression and anxiety and he was unable to continue in his position as a rocket scientist. He is currently retraining as a brain surgeon.

The case continues.
