Not sure what happened to the wall in the lunch room.  Accidents happen.  I think by 1 PM the next day is more than enough time for said party to step forward.  I’d rather hear from the party involved as opposed to hear say from anyone else.

…yeah, that was me…
I was shaking something loose from the vending machine for someone else–they always come to me to shake the machine.  I was trying to get leverage.  No leverage there.

The next time I have a dollar, I’ll give you one.  Isn’t it funny how you can work at a bank, and never have cash???

I appreciate you stepping forward.  I wish that you would have come to me initially.

  So I went in and talked to him, and apologized in person.  I was just earlier–yesterday, when it happened–the Golden Boy.  I took on a new project, handled alot details, got the ball rolling, made things look good–
  And then this.  I remember one time I did get fired for damaging something, a forklift–many, many years ago.  I was a tad skittish, obviously.  Just my luck, just after being re-instated on full-time, to be fired for cracking the drywall doing something for someone else.  Irony is a dish best serve with salsa.
  But I know him, from back in the day at Domino’s.  He accepted my apology and explanation, and explained why he would need to know right away–if word got back across the street to the wrong person before he could explain that he knew about it–it would look bad on him. 
  We all have to answer to someone, I guess.  I said, "I’m going to try hard not to break anything else."
  The wall had less of a crack in it than a full-fledged breach, the shape of my body.  It looked like the Coyote hit the wall and left a Coyote-shaped dent.  But all is forgiven, and I get to keep my job.
  For now.
