The culture that is Sweden
Sweden’s The Local reports: A Swedish heavy metal fan has had his musical preferences officially classified as a disability. The results of a psychological analysis mean that the metal lover can now count on having his income supplemented by state benefits.
Roger Tullgren …Photo#3, Photo#4, Photo#5), 42, from Hässleholm in southern Sweden, has just got a new job as a dishwasher at a local restaurant.
Because heavy metal dominates so many aspects of his life, the Employment Service has agreed to pay part of Tullgren‘s salary. His new boss meanwhile has given him a special dispensation to play loud music at work.
“The fact that I am so into music has affected my work situation to the extent that I have had to quit some jobs,” he said.
