I insulted a girl I didn’t know from anywhere, and never apologized.
So this happened about 11 years ago. I had just arrived at a bus stop, where I would normally wait for the bus to take me to school. It was the first day of school. I immediately saw two guys and two girls. The two guys and one of the girls were my friends. As for the other girl, I didn’t know her. I said hi to the two guys, and then somehow forgot to say it to my female friend.
One of my guy friends said “Aren’t you gonna say hi to her?”, and I realized I forgot to greet my female friend. Fortunately, she was cool about it, and I made the joke “I don’t say hello to annoying girls”, to which my guy friend replied, “You don’t even know her”. I was very confused. Of course, I knew her. She’s my friend. As for the other girl I didn’t know, she looked hurt, but she didn’t say anything.
Only a few minutes later, when I was on the bus, I realized that he meant the other girl. So yeah, I insulted this random girl, and I didn’t apologize. I don’t think I ever talked to her, ever, in the following years. But there was always this awkward feeling whenever she was around. I don’t know if she ever realized I thought he was referring to my friend, but it looked like she didn’t.
It’s been 11 years, and it still makes me cringe. The random girl whose name I forgot, if you’re seeing this, I’m sorry. I didn’t mean to call you annoying. I didn’t know you. You’re probably not annoying. And even if you are, I had no right to call you annoying, considering I didn’t know you.
