You can only apologize for so long, the thing about a apology is that you most likely don't know the entire story, your words are often flat, shallow, you may have no idea what others went through for you, because of you.
It may mostly be from your perspective.

Eventually your apologies may run flat ,and people may become offended , and they may no longer desire, attempt, to see things from your side. This may be because they feel the need to protect their selves against what could be considered manipulation, and what may be considered your unpredictability. Life does not work on occasion with the stance of unpredictability, especially when the occasion is that you are a manager. People may need perspective and with a wild card in the deck, they may not be able to put things into perspective. A manager may need perspective/ hind sight...

So, what may I say if my hand is up? Who knows, do I even know? Who would you be to tell me what to think, know? Who would the manager be?
What's the real answer? Is there one? I may be considered a tedious calculation , which has no clear answer...where business suggests that I be removed.

I can say I'm sorry a million times, but does it have weight? Do I really mean it? Do I really know the implications behind what I apologizing for (to)?

  • It's a college part time job.

    That said, it does reflect on the state of your current character.

  • I don't get it. Are you trying to justify missing work or saying that you're not truly sorry?

  • @JedExodus said: I don't get it. Are you trying to justify missing work or saying that you're not truly sorry?

    No it's not a justification it's what I currently perceive as reality. It may be seen as a justification, when you get to the bone of it all, but when you go looking for the meat, you may see it as hollow. Perhaps a justification, but certainly not a valid excuse, I may believe.

    I consider it a cycle of human error. I may "feel" sorry, guilt for what I've done. If I was truly, deeply sorry, and understood what I've done, and there was no more room for guilt and self empathy, I may have worked beyond what has influenced me to feel the "need" to feel "truly sorry" to begin with.

    I feel like I am stuck in a cycle of human error.
    It may be perceived as a misfiring, dots not being connected, ideas merging onto the wrong path ways...

    We may continue to make old mistakes, like "we're stuck in a loop". Can any one "provide" for me? I feel like I'm stuck in a loop...or may be its bad programming.

    Any thing?

  • Meh. People miss work all the time.

    I personally don't see it as a "screw up" if you don't particularily enjoy working there in the first place.

    Now if you were inexplicaly absent from something you did enjoy (like one day you didn't feel like yourself and didn't go in), then you probably should feel guilty about it.

    If you have a commitment to earn the money, (like say you had dependants), then maybe you should feel guilty about it.

    Otherwise, just play along to procedure, and try to enjoy your spare time.

    I possibly may want to thank you, I may agree with you in the same sense you believe what you've wrote and interpreted it, but I'm trying to keep a open mind. Regardless, your intentions seem to be honest and "proper". ":)"

    I believe I may be confused, I may need to lie down, I am going to lie down.

  • Personally, I would have a hard time skipping engagements because that's how I am, but I'm not going to question your logic here because I don't know why you did it.

  • The attempts of improving the mankind technology-wise AND nature-wise, a lot of cycles have to be put because of the animalistic nature of man -no matter how sophisticated you try to represent it, like buying yourself foods by making a laser read some dots and lines on its packaging, but still, you're buying foods in order not to DIE, your first instinct. These cycles are derivated forms of the not-so-straight upwards-going slope representing evolution/time, meaning they're represented by flat lines and those lines have an angle of 0. Those lines work as bottom surfaces and columns in much more bottom levels of this structure, as many other people work on more sophisticated upper floors. But it's a little known fact that when you add more and more floors to a building, its bottom base actually sits on its surface better and harder and more resistent because of the pressure strength coming from the weight of upper levels. Some cracks on these walls of bottom floors are inevitable occurences, but the nature of gravity and the pressure of many other floors molds those cracks -that are opened by the same pressure- back to its own shape and this also only helps hardening the figure for better. This way it's made sure that upper levels do not contain the danger of falling down BECAUSE of the poor design of the bottom levels; upper levels can only be destroyed by "middle levels" that aren't as hardened since they're rather new and they do not have many floors on them that may give off a big pressure to harden them (in that case the levels below these middle levels will stay unharmed), or by a complete redesign whose real life representation would be a total revolution and reform of a regime which seems unlikely.

    In other words, dude, just roll with it.

    Don't sell yourself short, you said a hell of a lot more than just that. Your message may have been greater, it is believed that it was , is.


    OT
    Head spinning, confused...no consumption though...

  • No I'm not selling myself short. This bowl'o soup I'm carrying on my neck always calculates most of the stuff interacting with the real subject matter, but in the end I love showing a glimpse to those little bits of other probabilities and then serving a completely shitty and uninteresting moral of story at the end. I love the smell of disappointment in the mo'nings.
