Apologies and Promises

Look look, we said we were sorry. Well, we're saying it now. Happy? Anyway, it's not like we weren't justified. You just don't know what we had to deal with, I mean, these people. No, we're not saying what you think we're saying. When we say These People we mean, you know, these specific people. And other people like them. Not that we're saying we didn't go a little far, I mean, accidents happen. The most important thing is to move on, right? Just keep walking. We promise, it won't happen again.
