Summary/
Abstract
Abu Yakubu is a young man living with his older sister. His boss (a woman) asks him to prepare a report and allows him to set his own deadline. Rather than set a reasonable deadline, he sets a deadline to impress his boss. On realising his folly, rather than negotiate an extension, he tries to avoid his boss and takes out his frustration on people around him. The case shows how an individual can hold other people responsible for his/her own wrong decisions and how the state of one?s mind can affect positively and negatively, other aspects of one?s life. The case is useful for teaching many aspects of human behaviour especially communication, assertiveness and building a healthy self-esteem
