You rolled a one.

Blunder: Your CEO farts during an all-hands meeting, soon followed by someone else, unmuted, flushing a toilet. Your CEO then gets the name Critical Excrement Officer.

They make a $17 billion "mistake" and pay a $361 million fine? I should make such a mistake.

Heck, they might as well close down every other division in the company. I doubt any of their other business has that level of return.

Blunder? LOL

And as observed by others, seems like it paid off pretty well for them. I bet they think long and hard -- maybe a whole minute -- before making another "blunder" like this again.

Did they win or lose the bet?

I guess the interest rate on my Barclays card is going up.  Better pay that sucker off.

Probably because of the fed, not Barclay's

Ban golfing.

The people who quit aren't worth the single ply toilet paper the office manager says is "good enough."
