Ben looked at the paper he was just given. " It's the expense account statememt from my business trip".
" Did I not give you an exact budgeted amount for this expense account?".
" Yes, but I thought If I spent a little more to lure some potential customers" Ben hesitated so he could think what he wanted to say next. " It would be money well spent".
Mr. Firestone took the paper, put it back in the desk drawer and took out another piece of paper. " Ben, I can't run a successful company when my department heads won't stay within a budget". He put the piece of paper in front of Ben. " Ben, read this".
" It's an action plan" he replied with a huff as he studied the paper. " What's the meaning of this Mr. Firestone".
" It's simple Ben, this plan says you improve on the things listed here within the time period shown on the paper" " Ben, I need you to sign it" he said with an icy stare.
" And if I don't sign".
" Ben, I will call security this minute and have you escorted from the building". " It's your choice".
Ben signed the paper.
" Can I go now?" Ben asked with disgust in his voice.
Ben shoved the paper to his boss and angrily walked out of the office.
