I’m Sorry

When I saw Jen Wagner’s post on Twitter and David Jakes’ comment last night, I felt awful. While I was not one who “wore” one of the costumes on Halloween, I did reference it in my post on 11/1 with a link to a Flickr page. Please believe there was no malicious intent on my part and I am now remorseful.

Last night, I immediately severed the link and made an amendment to the post. However, I feel that just quietly making these changes is the coward’s way out, hence this post.

David Jakes, I am sorry.

I have been given a lot to think about.

  1. I don’t think David was completely upset by it specifically. http://flickr.com/photos/shareski/1810910438/

    His comments here would indicate otherwise.

    My take on his comment in the Wagner post was with people taking liberties with his friendship. I for one have a relationship with David outside of twitter. However, if twitter is the only place you know someone, it may be the place to assume certain things.

    Yes, but this could be construed as taking liberties… as I don’t know David. Hence my apology.

    If he wasn’t upset about this that is fine, I’d rather wrongly apologize than not do so at all.

    Hi Jackie

    I agree – regardless of his response, it is always wise to do what you feel is most appropriate.

    Thanks for taking the time to post.

    Thanks Jennifer. It seems I’ve been apologizing quite a bit recently. I just said I was sorry to one of my classes today for overreacting to their inability to get on task the other day. They were shocked that a teacher apologized and claimed that they “deserved” it. I told them I didn’t agree and that I was sorry. They said they were sorry for wasting class time. I think we all left class feeling better after having cleared the air. I know we had a really productive day and the mood was a bit lighter too.
