A thing that really happened (at a tax office in Finland, in 2004) is even more unbelievable but it was big in the news back then: a man had died at his desk and they noticed it only on the third day.
The cleaners thought he was staring at his computer, concentratedly, and his colleagues didn't miss him at lunch because he often worked out of house.
That kind of ties in with your earlier post about motion-triggered lighting in government offices.
