Describe a time when someone apologized to you
You should say:
When it happened
Who he or she was
Why he or she apologized to you
And explain how you felt about it
The person who apologized to me is my dad. It was a long time ago when I was in kindergarten. Usually I wouldn’t remember things that happened that far back, but it was really an unforgettable experience.
That day, my dad forgot to pic k me up after school, usually that was my mom’s job, but she was out of town that day.
I had no money on me, and I didn’t have a phone back then. I waited for him in front of the school gate for about 3 hours, and he still didn’t show up after it got dark. I was starving and scared. It felt like I was abandoned, you know. But it turned out that my dad completely forgot about me. After having dinner with his friends, he just went straight home, and he was a little tipsy so he fell asleep soon after he got ho me. When he woke up, he realized no one’s home. And that’s when he suddenly remembered he was supposed to pick me up that day. He rushed to my school, and I was sitting on the curb crying. My dad ran to me and hugged me real tight. He was terribly sorry and promised that he would never do anything stupid like this again. And we didn’t tell my mom what happened, mostly because my dad asked me not to. I’m sure she would be furious if she finds out
There are not so many times I remember when someone apologized to me to be honest. People don’t often say sorry！！
But the time that sticks in my mind the most is when my friend, Liu Xiang, who I also shared a flat with near to campus, apologized to be quite profusely. It was several years ago now and I had been quite upset about some personal problems in my family. He was also upset about some issues with his girlfriend. In fact, we had a big argument one night after dinner because I felt that he had ignored all of my problems and constantly spend all our time together going on and on about his problems and his girlfriend and his feelings. I felt he was selfish. I really needed some support from him, for a change, rather than me always listening to his issues. Anyway, at this dinner I got upset, and then he got quite angry and defensive with me and he walked out of the restaurant in a rage, leaving me sitting there alone.
The next day he found me in the library and came to me, gave me a small book as a gift and said he was really sorry. He said he had been reflecting on why I was upset and had realized that he did spend way too much time talking about himself, and no time listening to my problems at a time when I really needed support. He seemed embarrassed and I got the impression he really did care for me. I thanked him and later that day we went for beers together and had a really good laugh. I think it’s important to apologise, it can clean the air between friends and promote greater understanding and empathy.
Do people in your country like to apologize to each other?
I would say that most people do not apologise much. However, they may show that they are sorry in a different way, like they might make extra efforts to me nice to you, to help you with things, to buy you a cake or something on their way home. This kind of gesture which shows care and kindness, instead of the actual words “sorry”. I think this is the way that most people that I know might express a sort of apology to each other. Actions speak louder than words, as they say.
Why do some people find it hard to apologize?
I think some people find it embarrassing to apologise. In a way it’s like a loss of face. I think it also takes quite a bit of courage to apologise. Also I think it is partially related to education – if we learn from our parents that a strong and honorable person apologises then we are likely to not find it so hard. So I think it depends. But it is sometimes embarrassing to say sorry to people, and I think most of us feel like that.
Why do some people make feigned apologies?
Some people apologise when they don’t really mean it because they either want to keep the peace or they want to win favour or stay in favour with another person. For example, some people will apologise to their boss even if they are not at fault, to show they are a loyal employee, or to show respect, as a form of politeness. They may also do the same because they want something and they are trying to get in the boss’s good books, get on his or her side and make a good impression. Another reason is for diplomacy with a partner or a friend who is upset and highly sensitive. You may not want to apologise or feel you should, but you realise your friend is genuinely upset and very sensitive and that you can make them feel a lot better if you say sorry. So you apologise to them. These are all reasons why one might give a feigned or perhaps not so sincere apology. But I think they are good reasons. This is part of living in society, we must learn to be diplomatic, intelligent and also kind with other people in varying situations.
