You work with a colleague for many yrs and then move to a different institution/ company.

You recommend a colleague for a position and that colleagues talent is easily recognized and is made an offer w/top $ - the the colleague ACCEPTS the position and then 3 days later call to tell you he will rescind because a better offer was made to stay at current employment.

would you

a- be upset and feel betrayed because you vouched for the person
b- - feel like fvck it such is life and business and remain the level of friendship
C- would you reach out and apologize further ( after initially offering apologies) if your were the person that turned down the job and your colleague did not react kindly to the news that he was not coming over.
