Apology or Grovel … You Decide (plus 5 great apology quotes)
Apology or Grovel?
… sorry seems to be the hardest word …
When a big side-tracking situation came along, and my blog output quieted, I decided I should apologise to my (three … four?) readers who might have nothing better to do than await my next literary disaster … you know who you are. What can I say? Maybe others could help.
I thought of a quote I heard many years ago …
Don’t tell people your problems; half of them don’t care and the other half are glad.
No problem excuses then, even if they’re true. But I have an answer, in case someone feels and apology is in order …
Get Help …
For this post I thought I’d find a few more quotes and leave it at that.
Apart, that is, for expressing my everlasting regard to the kind person who wants to know what happens next in my experimental whodunnit, Poker Face. You made me want to dance round the room and howl my thanks … someone, you, liked it. It’s crude, basic and written at speed. Part 2 will be out this coming week.
Here’s my top 5 so far:
Never ruin an apology with an excuse ― Benjamin Franklin
Keep your words soft and tender because tomorrow you may have to eat them
When you realize you’ve made a mistake, make amends immediately. It’s easier to eat crow while it’s still warm — Dan Heist
The only good thing about punctuality is that it usually gets you an apology
I’d have apologised by email, but I thought you’d rather have something you could tear to pieces, set on fire and jump up and down on
With any luck there’ll be three to four posts or so a week for the foreseeable future … I did tell you I’m moving house, didn’t I? … bette start building up my quotations store …
Have a look. Feedback.
