I got this today on my Homepage:
"It is a good rule in life never to apologize. The right sort of people do not want apologies, and the wrong sort take a mean advantage of them. - P. G. Wodehouse"
That's something I never thought of! And I thought I knew all about human nature. I can't think of too many people who don't want apologies, and only very few who take a mean advantage of them. Well, relatively few. I always thought people who don't apologize are the type who don't give a shit who they hurt, or how. What is a person supposed to do to make things right after they did something wrong? Most people I know settle well for an old-fashioned apology. I don't know, maybe it's just me. I always thought if I was wrong that it was good manners to give an apology. That's how I was brought up. I never take a mean advantage. In fact, if someone has done me wrong, and they think enough of me to apologize, I completely wipe the slate clean. All things done before are forgotten and forgiven. However I only allow myself to forgive once, and no more. I won't allow someone to go on and on shitting on me after I've forgiven them once. I am not the woman of a thousand chances!
If I am proven wrong, I don't mind giving apologies, I don't care who it is to. Well, most of the time anyway. And there is one rule of thumb, I must be PROVEN wrong.
Well anyway, today was quite a day. There is a blizzard here in Ocean Shores. We have to be careful with the doggies. They're so teeny, I do worry about them. Just like people, they can get lost in this kind of weather too. It looks like the Alaskan tundra out there!! My sis Anna had to wear 3 layers of clothing just to go out about 25 feet to get the mail! It took her 2 minutes to go to the mailbox. The wind was blowing something fierce, and powdery snow everywhere!! Tomorrow is supposed to be like this too. In fact, last time I looked, it's supposed to be like this all week. That's a shame, cuz ma is supposed to come up here on Tuesday. I hate the powdery snow!! That stuff is a bear to melt!!! It lasts a lot longer than wet snow. Well, one good thing is that we may have a white Christmas! Something I have never had in my lifetime.
