Cue Card # A time someone had to apologise to you.

You should Say:

  • Who this person is?
  • When this happened?
  • What this person said for apologizing?
  • Explain how you felt about the apology?

Sample Answer 1:

Knowingly or unknowingly we all do some wrong things in life for which we feel sorry within ourselves. Sometimes we hurt another person or someone else hurts our feelings. Whenever I realize my mistake, I don’t hesitate to feel sorry immediately. Here, I would like to talk about my friend, Rohan, who apologized to me for spilling ink on my assignment.

Rohan is my best friend. He is 20 years old and he is not tall, but looks very handsome. He has dark curly hair and a dimple on his cheek, which looks very nice when he smiles.

It so happened, that two days before our pre-board exams of +2, we had to submit our physics assignment. We both had prepared our assignments with great effort and were very happy with the end result. Rohan had bought a new ink-pen, and was trying to write his name on the cover page of the assignment. But, there was some problem with the pen. In an effort to start writing with the pen, he shook it hard and the whole ink fell on my assignment, which was also lying there. I was on the verge of tears.

All my hard work was wasted. He also felt bad and said sorry to me. I could see from his face expressions that he was really sorry. But, my heart was sinking.

I knew it was not his fault, so I forgave him. But I also knew that I would have to write my assignment all over again. Rohan stayed up with me the whole night and helped me in preparing my assignment all over again. It would not have been possible without his help. The next day we both submitted our assignments and got very good grades from our teacher.

Saying sorry cannot undo the harm, but it can definitely make you feel less bad about things. My friend tried to cover up for his mistake by first saying sorry and then helping me. Even today we are the best of friends.

Sample Answer 2:

Well I think that we all tend to make some mistakes in life now and then, sometimes intentionally, and sometimes unintentionally, but we usually regret them afterwards. I always try to apologize for what I do wrong, and of course, I expect the same from others.

So last month, my friend borrowed my car for the day and he knows very well that I’m very possessive about my car. I asked him to take good care of it as I know he is not a very good driver, and in fact, this is the reason why his father doesn’t buy him his own car.

But he promised me to drive it very cautiously and safely, however when he returned it in the evening he sounded very low and he told me that someone hit the car from the rear when he was stuck in a traffic-jam and that caused him to hit the car in front of him. He was feeling very guilty for not taking care of the car and he apologized repeatedly for his negligence, and he assured me that he would get it repaired the first thing the next morning.

I did feel sorry for him though, but at the same time very sad as my car was damaged, but somewhere in my mind I knew that this was not his fault. Normally, I easily lose my temper but it was because of his sincere apology that I couldn’t stay mad at him for very long.

So the next day, he went with me to the mechanic and luckily the damage was not so bad or expensive to fix. He apologized again and assured me that he’d be more vigilant in the future. We are still good friends and I feel that receiving an apology and forgiving someone is the best way to maintain and make relationships stronger.
