It was ten o'clock at night. Eddie was tired and hungry. He spent the last five hours talking to the company's senior managers. He realized that he would have to resign from his job, and also that was facing the possibility of going to prison. Six months ago, everything was fine. He had a wonderful job and he made a lot of money. Then he met some people who advised him badly. They gave him a list of companies and told him to buy their shares. He had to use the company's money to do this. At first the shares were rising, so he bought some more. Everything seemed so easy. Then the stock market crashed and he lost everything. Eddie telephoned his wife before leaving the office. He apologized for not phoning earlier, explaining that he had a difficult meeting. "You sound upset. Anything wrong happened?" she asked. "I’ll tell you about it if you want when I get back," he replied.
