A good start. But the apology isn't complete until you've had a meeting with a representative from the Professional Grievance agency - Gloria Steinem, Al Sharpton, etc. - who speaks for all members of whichever group or groups you have so grievously offended, and will take a hefty check in return for your complete absolution. Depending on the severity of the situation, an apology speaking tour may also be in order to properly expunge your record.

Hair shirts and scourges included in the penance packet.

...hefty check in return for your complete absolution until the next time they sense you are ripe for a shakedown....

The man I'm married to will say, "I'm sorry." And that's that. And I can accept it, or stew about it, but he's moved on.

Oh. Sorry. Sometimes I read too fast and missed the very last part. Damn. I thought we were still talking about relationships.

@Deborah - Jeder macht eine kleine Dummheit.

My wife tells me I talk faster than I think. Er, that's a compliment, right?

Gerard, the immensity of your apology and your sincerity demands that its receiver reciprocate by committing hara-kiri twice: once for being the source of your abject regret, and once for being the trigger for your wipeout of the thesaurus of synonyms.
