"I am responsible for all the confusion the team has caused since I took office."

THIS is how Japanese businesses typically react when the underlings do something to embarrass the business.

Right or wrong, this guy is putting his money where his mouth is and taking responsibility for his team.

Wish that others who are supposedly "in-charge" would do the same!"
