Mistake, Apology, & Forgiveness

The estimate “To err is human, to forgive divine.” is credited to English poet Alexander Pope in his 1761 poem titled “An Essay on Criticism, Part II”.

Pope missed something about making mistakes.

If an error is human, plus forgiveness divine, then where does that leave the expected apology from the error maker begging forgiveness? One article I study noted many components to an even-handed to goodness apology that goes way beyond a easy “I’m Sorry”, that is only the first step, but after uttering those more than one words, the well-trained apologist should explain what happened, admit responsibility, declare repentance, offer to repair, or compensate, plus finally request forgiveness, however one section rife with errors is Heating plus Air Conditioning beginning with the homeowner who fails to consult with an Heating plus Air Conditioning professional when selecting the unit for installation. They will likely choose a unit that is over or under the capacity they need. The Heating plus Air Conditioning pro can rapidly determine the optimum size for your beach house with a quick survey. Another official mistake is choosing an unqualified installer. That is where the “godliness” of forgiveness comes in as you let that poor Heating plus Air Conditioning installer off the hook while your extra currency goes to regular his work. If you make the mistake of attempting those repairs yourself, then you will need these words to make a proper apology to your fiance plus qualified Heating plus Air Conditioning repair person that you woke up at 4 a.m, but just say, “I’m sorry, I thought I could do it, it’s all my fault, I’ll never do it again. Honey, I’ll make this up to you, can you forgive me? Your payment to the Heating plus Air Conditioning repair person will cover step #5 of the apology process but forgetting step #6 here would be another error added to your civilization.
