I would go immediately to the boss’s office Monday a.m. and do a mea culpa.

Apologize profusely, ask what you can do to make up for this and promise it will never happen again. Tell the boss exactly how you plan to make changes to ensure that- i.e set up a reminder on your computer, check your calendar at noon every day while there is still work time avavailable etc.

The best defense can be a good offense.

Also, take full responsibility – do not mention other co-workers.

I would apologize to your co workers too that stayed late.

We all make mistakes. It’s owning your mistake that makes you a grown up.

Best of luck!

i’ll second what others have said – be honest and upfront and apologize, that alone means a lot
