Prompt for March 2: The Blunder

Standard

[Prompt from http://daily-writing.blogspot.com/ . Trigger warning: the word “rape”.]

His stupid, stupid clumsy fingers. Not only would the company never let him work in the advertisement department again but now his future working with the company at all was in jeopardy. His sweat was beading across his forehead and upper lip as he watched the lawyer and chair head discussing what was supposed to be the most creative ad yet. But what he really couldn’t grasp was why it was him and not the editor sitting in the hot seat.

Was it really his fault that the ad went to print with “best rapes in town” instead of “best rates in town”?
