I don't necessarily expect a reply to this because it's done but I feel the need to 'get it off my chest'. The other evening we had a full staff meeting at school. Normally I don't say boo to a goose but I had an issue I wanted to raise. Anyway to cut a long story short I raised it badly and felt I'd embarrassed/upset a colleague and put her on the spot. I could have phrased things much better and known when to shut up.I have to say it is out of character; after the meeting I immediately apologised and to her credit she graciously accepted. Of course the questioning of her actions was in public and the apology in private. The problem is my thoughts keep wandering back to it. I really wish I hadn't embarrassed her in that way I would hate to be on the receiving end and goodness knows what opinion my colleagues have of me. Do you think people have short memories?
