An unmistakable gesture: the finger. Once in a rage, it can be quickly held out to the other person and demonstrate how angry you are at the moment. This is exactly what a petrol station employee (60) from Winterthur ZH did in February 2020 and has now been sentenced by penal order. This is reported by “Züri Today”.
The woman was annoyed by her colleague that day. There were many customers in the shop and each of them operated a cash register. But although there were still many customers in the store, her colleague left, whereupon she asked him to continue collecting.
But the man didn’t respond. “Then I showed him the middle finger,” says the 60-year-old to “Züri Today”. She didn’t think much about it. Especially not that she could be convicted for it. However, the scene was captured by a surveillance camera. And the colleague reported it.
“I don’t understand why”
Because of abuse, the woman was sentenced to a conditional fine of ten daily rates of CHF 110 each with a probationary period of two years. “I don’t understand why you get such a severe punishment for a finger. I just don’t get it,” she said. However, she only has to pay the penalty if she repeats the offense because it was imposed conditionally.
Nevertheless, the woman has to dig deep into her pocket. In addition to a fine of CHF 300, there are also procedural fees of CHF 800, which means that she has to pay a total of CHF 1,100. She would never have thought that the stinky finger would cost her so dearly. (hey)
