Have you been in this sort of situation? Misunderstanding the requirement or the request and doing something totally opposite! I often have been in this type of fix. The reason is that I am too impulsive. I think I got all the details, but I sometimes miss an important part of the message or the memo!

This impulsiveness has landed me many times in the situation where I am the one apologizing for the mixup . But I often find it amusing in the retrospect. But do the people on the other side do so too?

Do I find it easy to forgive when there is a mixup or misunderstanding? I do try not to create a scene and curb my annoyance because I know that I can make same blunders when the shoe is on the other foot. What about you? How do you react when someone’s ineptness and blunder has cost you loss of valuable time and money?

Waiting for your feedback and comments.

  1. Nothing costs me money…I don’t have any to begin with. Time is free, so no loss there. Unless someone got injured, then I have a problem with forgiving people easily. Regardless of what some people think, I don’t hold grudges. That only hurts oneself.

  2. It’s a good question. If I’m honest my initial reactions when I feel I’ve been hard done by or that I’ve had my time wasted is to do just that – react. Lately though, I’ve tried to be less reactionary in general.

      1. Thank you. That’s where I’m good at now. I used to instant react too when I was younger. I had a turnaround ever since someone told me it can make me look older if I do not relax and control. 😉

  3. I am generally quite forgiving.
    If it’s a genuine mistake or blunder I will go out of my way to put the blunder maker at ease.
    If I find that something was done on purpose and with malicious intent I still won t confront the person. However I will do my best to avoid them in future.

  4. my brain is a sieve! I forget and confuse a lot of things, but if I laugh at myself it does not seem to be so bad after all. I only worry if I have taken someone’s time for granted.
