A Man Who Took a Shine to his Job

A Disgruntled Employee Launches a 'Shine' Offensive Against a Bali Resort Property.

(2/3/2009) An Ubud area man is now under police investigation for literally "taking a shine" to his former employer, a leading Boutique Resort property located along the Pejeng River.

According to a report in NusaBali, the 40-year-old man had recently resigned his job from the hotel after being caught by hotel security attempting to steal 40 liters of used cooking oil on January 2, 2009.

While apparently accepting the end of his employment with the hotel and avoiding prosecution by resigning, the former employee then decided to extract revenge on the hotel by installing sheets of reflective glass and aluminum sheeting on a hillside owned by his family on the riverbank opposite the hotel focussed on guest rooms and visitors lounging near the pool.

NusaBali reports that the man has been called for questioning by Gianyar Police who, it is assumed, will caution the man to "reflect deeply" before causing any further inconvenience to island visitors.
