People deal with stress in different ways. Some talk it out, others exercise or give themselves a treat to feel better.
A Florida man dealt with stress by trying to bury his boss, according to reports.
Erick A. Cox, a 32-year-old man who goes by Pork Chop, was arguing with his 57-year-old boss at a construction site of a new Walmart in DeBary, Florida Wednesday morning.
A witness told deputies that Cox started beating his boss, allegedly into unconsciousness, and then got in a front-end loader and dropped a load of dirt on the site superintendent’s head.

The dirt pinned the boss to the ground and he could not move while Cox used the loader to dig up more dirt, the witness said. Cox then dumped another load of dirt on the man, covering half of his body up to his waist.
Cox was arrested Wednesday and charged with aggravated battery. He has since been released from jail.
