    At least he apologized. That’s a start.

    One thing you can say about Rat—he is one sorry individual.

    Rat has the first part right, making amends.

    He needs to work on the second part, changing himself so he does not need to make as many amends again in the future; but that requires learning, caring, and being truly repentant.

    He said he would like to apologise. But he didn’t.

    Priest: Did you want confession?

    El Mariachi: Heh? Well, maybe later, Father. ‘Cause where I am going, I’d just have to come right back.

    Worth sharing, but can’t tweet anymore. Guess I’ll have to X-crete the link on X-critter!

    (Just joking. I don’t share many links plus I nuked my Twitter account months ago. But I like the rebranding joke and hope it catches on.)

    Apologies mean nothing from RAT! He’s not sorry or remorseful one bit!

    I’m sincerely sorry for what I did, and I promise, that given half a chance, I’ll do it again!

    It is human (Rat) nature. The good that I would, I do not and that that I would not, that I do. We try to correct this behavior but aren’t always successful.

    I’ll take the honesty, just a lot easier to deal with….might hurt a bit but it won’t change much. Rarely have to backstep on it like lying often demands (remembering the right lie components, too ).

    Sort like Catholic confession when I was a kid. Confess your sins on Saturday and go right out and commit them again for next Saturday’s confession.

    Almost as bad as a former acquaintance who would often begin a sentence with, “No offense, but…” and it was, of course, usually offensive.

    I like prefacing every conversation with “With all due respect”. Then I speak my mind.

    I have said it before, Rat is honest in stating his opinions. Also, blunt, callous, disdainful, uncaring, etc.
