Often we say regrettable words. Unfortunately, there is no delete button to take them back or remove them from existing. Yet when a person becomes cross or angry they say words or phrases that they soon regret. Not all people are like that, though. There are individuals who lose their tempers and never even have one ounce of remorse. The regrettable words comes generally during an argument that heated up. Frequently, it is at the start of a marital spat that ends up going out of control. Once all the nastiness has been said, how does the other person expect to forget it? On one of the episodes of “Vexed” in season one, the lead female character, Kate, played by Lucy Punch, was in counseling with her husband. He released a rant of every negative thought he had about her. Regrettable words? He said so later, but it was unbelievable so the last show of season one showed her walking with Jack, the other main character, talking about being single again. Once the words were said, apology or not, they can’t be taken back or forgotten. It’s probably how many marriages end because one partner says too much and is so cruel that it cannot be erased. Even in everyday life, people lose their patience and say regrettable words to service individuals such as bank tellers, clerks in a grocery or in shops. They have no right to be so unkind as these individuals are doing their jobs to the best of their ability and if they are wrong, then the manager of any business should step in and assist their staff. It’s unfortunate how many people lose their tempers have road rage and say words that should be regrettable, yet unfortunately the person speaking them keeps right on going seeing nothing wrong with their actions. Of course, there are situations in life that definitely try our patience. However, it doesn’t mean that anyone should be ruthless in their speech hurting the other person’s feelings simply because they cannot control their mouth or their thoughts. In the Good Gus series, Bad Bart, in book one, does say regrettable words. You will also notice that he does not apologize for his actions. The reason is that I thought it would be small lesson for the children to understand and to see how Sheriff Gus handled the situation. The series is available exclusively on Kindle worldwide.
