Whoever You Are -- I'm Sorry

Last week was really hectic for me. In addition to celebrating the 4th of July, we had my daughter's birthday (on the 4th as well). The 3rd saw me running hither and yon, getting a cake pan, cake mix, presents, napkins, and all sorts of other birthday trappings, as well as 4th of July supplies.

Mid-afternoon I popped in at Roberts, looking for that aforementioned cake pan. A car was pulling out and I drove into the vacated spot, not realizing that a car coming from the opposite direction had their eye on the same spot. They were coming at a weird angle, I was in a hurry, and the sun was wicked hot and bright, and I didn't see their turn signal until I was 3/4 of the way into the spot. I then realized what I had done, but they were already waving their arms and calling me all sorts of names. I'm glad both our windows were up or I'm sure I would have caught an earful.

So -- I would like to make this a public apology. If you were looking for a parking spot at Roberts in Orem, Utah, on the afternoon of July 3rd, and had your parking spot swiped from you, I'm really sorry. It was completely unintentional.

This post reminds me of a song,

"I wanna thank you, who whoever you let me change lanes when I was driving in my car..."

We've probably all done something like this before. *hugs*

Aww Tristi. And you're carrying around this burden of guilt because you 'did them wrong'.

I think we've all done something like this and then felt awful about it because it was so unintentional. I think when we're the guilty party once in awhile, maybe we can be a little more empathetic when someone does it to us.

I always try to assume that the other person didn't mean to do what they did or that they had a really good reason.

Way to be sweet and apologize!
