I made a stupid mistake today and made some work inaccessible, delaying two other colleagues work as they are the only ones capable of fixing my mistake. What is the correct way to approach this scenario in regards to how I communicate with my colleague? I am asking as I do not want to come across as panicked and apologetic but at the same time not considerate of my blunder.
One of my colleagues is dependant on the work he cannot access but has indicated it can be retrieved. It just may take some time to do.
