You heard right.
“A judge in Singapore sentenced a 66-year-old baggage handler at Changi Airport to three weeks in jail this week for misbehavior that ruined the trips of countless travelers and cost Singapore Airlines and SilkAir more than $30,000.”
You may wonder what this misbehavior was. Not stealing, not destroying, but switching baggage tags. Yup.
“The employee, who worked for an airport subcontractor, was assigned to bag security screening back in 2016, and the x-ray machine he was using kept breaking down. As a result, he repeatedly had to lug the heavy bags by hand to another machine several yards away. He probably could have used some help, but his superiors didn’t offer any, saying they were short-staffed.”
Due to this, he decided to take revenge. By switching the bag tags. 66-year-old Tay Boon Keh was later sentenced to prison due to the feat. His misdeed cost Singapore Airlines more than 33,000 dollars USD.
So what do you think, do you think that jailing him was justifiable? Tell me below.
