Management trainee embraces ‘ownership mindset’, takes home office equipment
Police have raided his house for the equipment but none was found. The police, unsure what to do next, arrested him anyway, because why not!
Gazi, 27, has now been placed in a soft, two-day remand. "He will admit to something eventually although we cannot use eggs as the prices are crazy," said OC Haider.
Abdul Gazi, an employee of Undue Undergarments, the leading garments retailer in the lower Chittagong area, was charged with theft and discomfort for taking home the three office fans, lights, two computers, seven chairs, one AC, mini refrigerator and paper punch machine.
Gazi said he was not sure why the management was upset. He did what they had asked. Two weeks prior, Gazi attended an employee training programme arranged by Undue Undergarments to help develop better sales and management skills. This extensive workshop involved watching several free Youtube videos on building management skills. Employees were provided one shingara per hour.
"The programmes stressed on how to make employees more effective by giving them more authority. We were told to take ownership, so I did. As an owner I felt I needed to sell all of this equipment to raise money to buy a motorbike, as I am now an owner," said Gazi, saving the OC from using eggs for extracting a confession.

Now the police are further unsure what to do. On one hand, Gazi did what his firm told him to do, sort of. On the other hand, he had sold the office equipment and now other employees of Undue Undergarments are sitting on the floor in a hot room using pen and paper to manage inventory. They are uncomfortable but cannot complain to HR because HR does not have a computer to log the complaint.
