Oh! what a tangled web we weave, When first we practice to deceive!

How is it their fault? What happened to personal responsibility Corey?Why should it be his employers fault that they trusted that he was telling the truth instead of his fault for deceiving them?

I'm going to side with GB in that regard. While FN's failure to check Irvine's history is somewhat irresponsible, it is not the company's fault that he lied. If I forget to lock my front door then I'm a moron, but that does not excuse someone from walking in and making her or himself at home.

Background check.

It might have been easier. Both him and the FN would have been spared the pain and aggony.

That does not answer my question though Corey. Why is it not his fault for lying? What happened to personal responsibility?

He was the one who was deceitful. Why is it someone else's fault and not his?

I never suggested that it WASN'T his fault for lying.

Yes, he got himself in some hot water. And yes, it was his responsibility to tell the truth.

That is sure what it sounded like. I guess I must have somehow misread your statement.

Thanks, no problem.

One thing is for sure: If you don't cut the mustard with the FN, then you're out of there on roller skates.
