A mouse left a civil service office unmanned for a day as the staff working there reportedly refused to share their space with the rodent and took a day’s leave until the animal was caught.
According to Phileleftheros, three civil servants – two women and a man – told their supervisor a few days ago that they had noticed mouse droppings in their office.
The newspaper said that their head of department had told them traps would be installed to catch the rodent, but the employees refused to return to their office until the mouse was caught and took a day’s leave.
Immediately after their departure, traps were placed in the office, and the next day the mouse was found trapped in one of them. The three officials were informed and returned to work.
