Writing II

Write a letter or an email to the respective person apologizing for the mistake.



Subject: Apologizing for the mistake

Dear Jack,

I apologize for the way things went last night. We’re both open-minded people, so you know sometimes our ego can get the better of us. In this case, my ego got the better of me, and I lost control.

When you helped to correct me, I thought you were trying to confront me, and I became overly defensive. The whole thing was an absolute misunderstanding.

I’m sorry and embarrassed for being angry and shouting at you. You’re a nice person, and you should not be treated like that by anyone. I hope you can find it in your heart to forgive me, and I promise that something like this will never happen again.

My sincerest apologies,
