Japanese Officials Apologise On Tv After Worker Goes To Lunch Early

Japanese officials apologise on tv after worker goes to lunch early

Japanese officials have apologised during a bizarre television news conference after a public servant went to lunch three minutes early.

The employee works at the waterworks bureau in Kobe.

Management docked the worker half a day’s pay as a result of him leaving the office just before noon, which he did 26 times in seven months.

The man explained that he left a few minutes early because he needed “a change of pace”.

He also expressed his desire to buy a bento lunch each day – a common takeaway meal in Japan.
