Most of the employees charge their phones at work places. But my dear readers, a boss has asked his employees to stop charging their mobiles in the office and called it as ‘Electricity Theft’. It looks like the boss might be annoyed with the employees’ habit of charging mobiles phones at work. It looks a bit bizarre because the employees spend nearly ten hours in the office and sometimes the phones may run out of charge. The only way to save the battery is either not to use it or keep the mobile data off. Keeping the mobile away is not possible because at times mobile is must at work places and need to be available for quite some time. In such cases, if the employee is stopped from charging the phone, then it will be a big problem.
Here is the note made by the boss – “Nobody is entitled to ‘charge up’ any mobile phone or other electrical devices on these premises. It is theft of electricity and you may find a deduction has been made from your pay. Phones should be switched off.” The picture of the note was shared by a user on Reddit. “One of a seemingly endless series of unreasonable notes left by my boss. It’s great here,” he captioned the image.
The post has got many comments. One of the users wrote, “They did this at Walmart once. I was on my lunch hour and they said I couldn’t plug my phone in. It was the same claim to electricity theft. Prison is what it’s like really.”
