Man fakes his own death to get away from "difficult customer"

A man has just told the story about about the time he faked his own death to avoid dealing with a difficult customer.

Patrick Lenton was working at Sydney International Airport, when an angry British man approached his "collections desk".

After proving to be quite the difficult customer, Patrick took the rather large step of faking his own death in order to avoid dealing with him.

Already at this point you can see why he'd want to fake his own death to get out of this.

Then, in a stroke of genius he hatched a plan.

To wait this out.

He claims he hasn't faked his death since the incident, though clearly it's tempting for anyone working in customer service to do so.
