The Art of Apologizing

This is obviously an email forward but way too funny.

It is also a great illustration of mis-managed communications.  Make sure you scroll to the bottom for the pictures.  Greatness.

The Art of Apologizing
His Apology letter
Hi Sweetheart,

I am sorry about getting into an argument about putting up the Christmas lights. I guess that sometimes I feel like you are pushing
me too hard when you want something. I realize that I was wrong and I am apologizing for being such a hard-headed guy. All I want
is for you to be happy and be able to enjoy the holiday season.

Nothing brightens the Christmas spirit like Christmas lights! 

I took the time to hang the lights for you today and now I will be off to the hockey rink.
Again, I am very sorry for the way I acted yesterday. I'll be home later.

Love you,

Her response

Hi Honey,
Thank you for your heart-felt apology. I don't often get an apology from you, and I truly appreciate it.

I, too, felt bad about the argument and wanted to apologize. I realize that I can sometimes be a little pushy. I will try to respect your feelings
from now on. Thank you for taking the time to hang the Christmas lights for me. It really means a lot.

In the spirit of giving, I washed your truck for you and now I am off to the mall.

I love you too!
