Today Parth was very upset. Somehow everything was going hay-ward since morning.
First his car got bumped into another, then the person who had promised to deliver the material yesterday had not shown up till now and now he learnt from a colleague that one of the ABMs had not shown up for the training.
“What the hell!”, he thought.
He called the ABM and asked why he had not shown up.
“But sir, I informed Mr. Parth that i would not be able to come for the training!” ABM reasoned.
“You are talking to ‘Mr. Parth’ right now and I have not received any intimation till now” shouted Parth in the phone.
How the hell can this person lie so blatantly! Parth lost his temper and gave a piece of his mind to the ABM.
“With all said and done, at least tell me why you are not able to join us? Do you realise how important this training is for you and how much company is spending on your training?”
The ABM was now almost in tears. He still maintained that he had informed the head office. ,
“Sir, my 6 year old son has been diagnosed with cancer last week and I will have to take him for the surgery on Saturday!” he added.
Parth was shocked. He mumbled something and disconnected the phone. He went and checked his mail and there was his mail starring at him from the screen. He felt so ashamed of himself. He mopped around for a while and but could not concentrate on anything!
Ultimately, he gathered the courage and called the ABM again to apologise.
