Need Help (No!, Not Girl Help)

Fri Mar 01, 2002 12:13 am

Okay, here's the deal.

I have a friend who is 14-15 and he is short. And I made fun of him like 6 months ago...just over and over and over again and I know that. I admit that I was wrong, and that I had no right to do that. And I want to apologize, but I don't know how. We haven't said a word to each other for like 4 months.

I just "dont have the balls" to walk up to him and say, I'm sorry. This is what I want to say:

"Please let me talk for 3 minutes. First of all, I am sorry. So sorry you don't even know. And I know that I had no right to make fun of you, and if between us, one of us makes fun of the other, it should be you making fun of me. You're better looking, and more popular and smarter than I am. Please give me another chance to be your friend"

I dream about saying it but I just can't. Any help, please?

Your idea sounds pretty good. I know it'll take some courage to be able to admit you were wrong and say the stuff you mentioned, but do your best.
"Let me think about it" = the coward's way of saying "no"

Just do it. If you truly articulate regret, your friend will forgive you and respect you. But he may never trust you again.

Exactly. Sack up and just spit it out. Much easier for both of you.

P.S. It's not nice to make fun of other people.  Big grin

LY772, guess what? No matter how much you want to suck up, the midget won't get over it. Just hope that you don't have to work for him in ten years.

Please do find the courage to apologize to him. As a person who was picked on a great deal as a child, I can tell you it would mean a lot to him. And besides, you don't want to end up on his "People I Will Kill When I Go Insane" list!

I dont think 80% of the people in here could give you girl help anyhow. Just my take on things.

Apathoid. Obviosly I was being sarcastic again. Perhaps a post like yours is what I get for giving people like you too much credit in being able to see that on here.

Focus, gentleman. I still have a problem.

When is a good time? At school? After/Before School? Phone? Should I go over to his house?

I think i'd rephrase your apology, give it some umphh. Maybe something like this, "Hey dude, I'm sorry for talkin down to you and I realize that our relationship has taken a decided downturn lately. And I don't blame you for being so short with me latley. I guess what I am trying to get at is, I can see why you you have been a little mad. It's just that sometimes you and I just don't see eye to eye on things and I result to mocking you. Any way I hope you accept this apology as just a small token on my behalf towards our friendship, now what do you say we go get a little bite to eat, I'm really not that hungry but I could go for a small fry." Oh and pat him on the head as you are talking, the little poeple like that.

I'm laughing, so I guess it is!

Seriously, it will be very hard to say that you are sorry. We all have a hard time admiting we are wrong about things. Just do it and get it over with. Like taking a Band-aid off.

It's not funny. It's stuff like that that got me into this position.
