Coworker stole mini split system from office

I’ve always heard that supervisors are seriously concerned about disgruntled employees after they leave.

It hasn’t made much sense to me why this would be such a major issue.

I cannot think of any scenario in which I would retaliate against a past supervisor. I guess that does not mean I’m the norm. Apparently, there are lots of problems with ex-employees coming back to their seasoned offices and trashing things. And they shall often try to sabotage the corporation, fellow co-workers, or to vandalize important equipment. In some instances, they may also steal things from the office for their own use. I found this out the hard way when one of my co-workers stole our only air temperature control unit for the entire office last week. This guy had been a real clown at labor for months… He had not been doing his job and he was fired, appropriately. A week or two later, I walked into the office and something seemed off. It seems unquestionably quiet, as though there was some background noise missing. It took quite a while for me to realize that it was air temperature control equipment. My relaxing friend and I always had a small mini split ductless heating and cooling system installed in the office that satisfactoryly provided us with the heat and AC my relaxing friend and I needed. As the day went on, it began getting warmer and warmer inside of the office. I looked up at one point wondering when the cooling system was finally going to kick into gear, only to realize that the entire mini split ductless heating and cooling system was gone. There were only wires hanging where the Heating, Ventilation & A/C component had been. It sure was a tepid and humid week toiling without any AC… and it was also pretty embarrassing to have my coworkers mock me for being so in-observant.
