Boss is happy, until one part was not manufactured correct and passes through mr X and goes to site. Which is rejected due to a defect.
On the same project there are other two engineers who made similar mistakes and are still working.
Now Mr. X's boss is always bringing up how he messed up that issue. There are layoffs going on in Mr X's company. Lot of people are getting laid off every month.
Mr X is in process of applying for other jobs and had some interviews which are in process.
What should Mr X do?
1) quit and focus on finding new job
2) let boss know, other 2 people messed up. Why he is getting picked on? might escelate the situation.
3)keep working and wait for the hammer to drop
