Ill do anything to keep my job, ill stay for extra hours and ill even shine your boots for free sir.I just cant see my family starve because of me. Please sir just let me keep my job, it wont happen again.I'm truly sorry sir.

I just felt like it was unfair but i cant lose my job because of that mistake.
