I'm sorry. I made a mistake.
I'll try to never let it happen again. But to be perfectly honest, I cannot guarantee that it will not.
See, I am still new here. I am trying to remember all of the procedures and rules. But there are so many of them. It is really very difficult to remember everything when virtually every aspect of your life is completely different from what it was before.
Sometimes I forget one of the rules. Even the easy ones.
I am so, so sorry.
But could we please put this in perspective?
It is not like I committed a crime against humanity. No one was harmed because of my mistake. No lives were lost.
I was distracted and fell into an old habit. I forgot to weigh my potatoes before coming to the check out desk.
Yes, I understand that because the clerk has to run back to the produce section to weigh my potatoes that you will all be delayed approximately 3 minutes. I understand you are very busy and want to finish and go to wherever you are going. I understand that the grocery store is crowded and the lines are long.
But is all of the glaring and huffing and eye-rolling truly necessary?
Can't you cut me a little bit of slack?
