A man has quit his job over having 666 stamped on his W-2 form. While the number wasn't intended to have any malicious or religious meaning whatsoever, the maintenance worker decided that the potential condemnation of his soul was too big a risk to take. Fox News shared the details on this strange news story on Feb. 7.
Walter Slonopas is a maintenance worker in Tennessee, and once he saw 666 stamped on his W-2 he quit as he felt accepting it would condemn his soul to hell. The company says that the number solely meant it was the 666th W-2 mailed out from them, but that was of no solace to Slonopas. Interestingly he had also been assigned the number 666 for clocking in, though he was supposed to be assigned number 668. He complained and was given a new number.
Slonopas works for Contech Casting LLC, and the company says they would like to reissue the maintenance worker a new W-2 and rehire him. Apparently, however, Walter Slonopas feels he has had enough. After having 666 stamped on the W-2, he thinks it is time to move on as he says, “God is worth more than money.”
