Today’s tale of woe starts and ends with me. I did something stupid. Really, really stupid.
I accidentally forwarded an email to someone that had some snarky comments in it from another person. (Yes – directed towards the person I sent it to.). Big, big, bigger-than-big mistake. The person who made the comments didn’t really mean them. He was just letting off steam, and the other person became his target.
And so, anger and hurt feelings abound. My friend wrote a lengthy, heart-felt apology. I called and left an apology. And I sent an apology as well.
Don’t know what else to do. Either the person has to forgive us, or not. Sure hope he does, though.
Wouldn’t life be great if we could have a “do over” button? (Maybe like that EASY button from the Staples commercials?) So when you ate 10 pieces of chocolate candy when you really only meant to have an apple, you could just push the button – and “poof!” calories and guilt disappear. Or when you accidentally wash a wool sweater (am I the only one who’s done this????) and it shrinks – just push that good ol’ button and ta-duh! Good-as-new sweater.
Think how sweet it would be? What would you do over if you had the chance?
