A young, newly appointed IBM company‘s manager was carpeted by his leadership. He made a deal, in which his leadership lost 10 million dollars.
When he realized his mistake, it was too late, the money were floated away.
He came into the office and, feeling his guilty and not waiting until the leadership will tell him something, said:
— I understand that you can retire me, and, admitting my guilt, accept your decision.
— To retire you? — The leader asked. — We have just spent 10 million on your training and may not throw such valuable human resources. Go to work!
