I once saw an advert on the Television and even though I do not recall
what it was all about, I vividly remember a particular sentence that jumped
out at me "sometimes sorry is not nearly enough". I have seen
so many movies where the barmaid mistakenly empties the content of her
tray on a customer; where a gentleman engrossed on the phone bumps into
a woman rushing out of the train station; where a colleague mistakenly
drops the wrench on another colleague at the construction site; where
the car behind gradually rolls into the one in front of it.
There are a thousand and one scenarios and they all have one phrase in
common "it was an accident". This 'explanation' of why
some perfectly groomed guy's shirt is now dripping Corona or why the
woman who is rushing to pick up her kids from school now loses another
5 minutes struggling to gather the contents of her bag on the pavement
is usually followed by the word 'sorry'.
In most cases, especially when the harm or injury caused is negligible
as in the case of the Corona drenched shirt; 'sorry' makes it
all better. It even brings out smiles on occasion; apologetic and forgiving.
Like that advert says however, sorry is not always enough.
When Sorry Isn’t Enough
A broken collar bone, a serious injury at work, medical conditions brought
on by automobile accidents, life altering and/or threatening conditions
on account of an 'accident' are some of the situations where the
inadequacy of an apology as a remedy is most apparent.
