Last week we had a man pay over 2 million for his lunch. This week we have a guy who would rather fake his death than pick up the tab… repeatedly. Milwaukee man, Robert Farnam routinely fakes heart attacks in order to avoid paying for meals and cab fares. Nobody is going to demand payment from a dying man, its better for business just to rush him out the door. He was arrested last week after a doctor in a hospital he was unnecessarily rushed to recognised him... again. In fact, he is on probation with five priors for similar offences this year alone. Charged with fraud and habitual criminality, if convicted he stands to serve 2yrs 9months. Perhaps it would be easier to just pay the bill. Once again, further proof that there is no such thing as a free lunch. If you want to cook a meal that is easier on both your heart and your pocket, take a look at our healthier seafood recipes.
