I trust that up till today, this moment, this minute, every one of us would have been put or faced with situation where you do not wish or do not want to be in that position or even to be the person with that kind of authority, to decide and make a call and put in action certain thing that happened around you.
And I think most of you reading here will unconsciously nodding your heads hehehe
But this is a real story which I have heard and I was dumbfounded when this friend of mine was willing to share this little secret of his life.
Ok, this is how it goes.
Imagine that you are at the stage of your career in an educational institution where you’ve been well recognised by the senior management of your company. But one fine day, one of your senior directors came to tell you that:
SD: Hey, we hv got a situation here.
You: Umm-Hmmm. What is it?
SD: You see. One of our students, NAME, who is the son of the President of XXX (country). But yesterday, he had invited one of his friends, a lady, for a drink in a pub. And after the drink, they went up to the roof of the pub for a chat.
I think the boy was a bit of drunk, and started molesting the girl, and then sexually assaulted her. Now the girl is in my office, crying and traumatised by the incident.
You: (Obviously shocked by the incident) What!? We gotto lodge a police report!
SD: No. You see. The boy is the son of the President of XXX (country). And we have a very good relationship with the country and also every year, they send lots of students here. I want you to take charge of this case and “settle” this case.
This is the situation. What are you gonna do? There are 2 ways to handle this situation.
1) Take the girl to the nearest police station, and make a report against this boy. And face the consequence of being sidelined by your senior management, and certainly there goes the prospect of your career.
2) Go into your SD’s office. Sit the girl down and convince her that she consented to what that had happened on the roof. And tell her that there is no chance of her winning the case since there is consent to that incident. And you will be highly regarded by the senior management of your company, and very quickly you’ll get promoted to a senior position with a fat pay cheque.
How would you handle this?
Damn… I’m getting old, man. Need people to help me decide on trivial matter like this. hahahahaha
