A Dhoka man, who made a career out of telling others that no work is beneath them, was offended this Friday for being mistaken to be a ride-share driver.
Afzal Ahsan, of the proud Ahsan family, was waiting illegally on a sidewalk when a boy with a mobile phone approached him and asked him if he was Zafar. "Who is Zafar?" Afzal asked, to which the boy said Zafar was his BhaiKoiJabenCancelKoren rider.
"How dare you think I am a BhaiKoiJabenCancelKoren rider? Just because I am on a bike, does not make me a rider!" he bellowed.
Afzal's screams of displeasure soon attracted a crowd, who asked him what the matter was. "This stupid boy thought I was his rider. Like I am someone who has a bike which he uses to help others while making a little income on the side," Afzal said, before further berating the boy.
Afzal, who loves telling his subordinates that no work is beneath them, also addressed this issue and said it was more about respect. "You can't mistake people for being someone else. It's not about being a rider. Day before yesterday, I was mistaken for a CEO, even though I was just a CFO. It's about respect. Respect," he said.
Afzal ended his tirade by asking the boy to buy his own bike. "Once you buy the bike, you won't have to ask others for help. Help yourself, first. Go to a bank, get a loan. Then use your bike to pay off your loans, there's no harm in that," he said. He chalked out an entire business plan for the kid after feeling a little stupid over his outburst. He later posted a feel good story on his Instagram about how he had helped out the kid, without going into the details of what had actually transpired.
