    So this afternoon a patient left the  floor  I’m on after her appointment. A few minutes later she came back up to my desk and said:

    “this may sound weird or unusual but the last time I was in a few weeks ago I wasn’t very nice to you and I was rude, I wanted to come up and apologize for that. You didn’t deserve to be talked to like I did. Everyone in your office is so professional and nice and I really appreciate that and you didn’t deserve the way I treated you.  Here’s a piece of chocolate, it has a nice saying on the inside. (dove chocolate which she gave me has messages pre printed on the inside of the wrapper I found out today.)”

    Now to be quite honest I’m not sure I remember our conversation a few weeks ago, actually I don’t.  Do I remember her being rude, maybe some attitude but nothing that stuck with me.  I was however very surprised when she apologized, it was evidently something that stuck with her and has weighed on her. I thanked her for taking the time to come back and do so.

    What’s even more surprising is this girl is in her young 20’s, that’s not something you see from many people let alone someone that young.  Now I know you guys will jump on the “dude she was hitting on you or flirting” but the truth is she wasn’t she was truly sorry for what she had done.

    Have to say after the issues I’ve had at work the past few weeks this was a nice change of pace and kind of made my week.

    How are you living your Dash?

    Not something you see every day, that’s for sure.

    If I had to do that, well there ain’t enough hours in the day…{#emotions_dlg.mathews_doah}{#emotions_dlg.mathews_embarassed}

    The end is near....

    Okay, I’ll be the first to say it – “Dude, she was hitting on you……….”  never crossed my mind. {#emotions_dlg.mathews_doah}

    It was nice that she felt the need to apologize and followed through.  Some times folks just have a bad day. {#emotions_dlg.mathews_thumbs_up}

    Ouch!

    That is nice to see. And it’s unfortunate that such a response is seen as a rarity in our day. It takes a lot of humility to intentionally approach someone like that and apologize. Takes some courage, too. Kudos to the young lady, and may she pass that down to many generations!

    We’re so used to ‘normal’ behavior, it surprises us when someone apologizes.

    Also makes you scratch your head sometimes if you don’t remember being offended LOL.

    Hat off to the young lady {#emotions_dlg.mathews_hugs}

    I will be honest here.   It is becoming less frequent to hear any individual own up to indescretions.   However I experience more young owning their faults than I do the older generations.   Its real easy to say kids have no respect.  Its harder to admit our baby boomers failed to lead by example.   I work with the public daily.  The young are far more forgiving to deal with.

    Either way.  Kudos to that gal for it.  We all have our moments.    {#emotions_dlg.mathews_thumbs_up}
