When people don't like their job, they often try to find another job, quit, or just put up with their current job for a certain amount of time. For one man, none of those options sounded good. Instead, because he hated his job at a chocolate factory so much, he called in a fake bomb threat. His motive behind the threat was to get fired. When police arrived at his job, he told them he was unhappy with his work and wanted a way out. He may have had his wishes granted, but at a high cost. For calling in the fake bomb threat, the man faces charges of False Reporting in Denver County, Douglas County, and across Colorado.
