Dumb as **** Analogy there.

a person is slightly different from a plate.

I don't know, I threw a baby on the ground, and apologizing to it did NOT make things better.

It only has a few more cells and chromosomes, deep down we are all plates.

Do you really feel ALL BETTER when someone apologizes to you?
User avatar #52 to #40 - Durricane **User deleted account** (08/28/2013) [-]
I'd much rather have someone tell me they're sorry for what they did than rub **** in my face and laugh.

Seems like someone did that to you.
User avatar #61 to #52 - smittywrbmnjnsn (08/28/2013) [-]
Um, I don't think that's the question I asked.

I was comparing an apology to the person saying nothing about it.

You compared an apology to being bullied... and that's not the same.
#46 to #40 - captainkrobin ONLINE (08/28/2013) [-]
That's not the point I'm making.
User avatar #62 to #46 - smittywrbmnjnsn (08/28/2013) [-]
So... you consider analogies that you agree with... to be cancerous?
#2 - lucarioveethree (08/27/2013) [-]
Preposterous. Why would I apologize to something I threw on the ground?

except a plate is not a living thing, so it doesn't have the ability to forgive
User avatar #9 - dissectedtesticle ONLINE (08/27/2013) [-]
let's not compare humanity to a plate.

Apologising for something wrong you have done is a promise you won't do it again.
User avatar #19 - tenaciousjon ONLINE (08/27/2013) [-]
There's a difference between saying sorry for the sake of it and saying sorry because you truly regret what you did.

Apologizing does have some degree of impact if you mean it.

Not if the damage is bad enough, hence the plate analogy
User avatar #35 to #21 - zorororonoa (08/27/2013) [-]
but plates are incapable of forgiving you and accepting an apology because they are a ******* plate

yeah well an analogy should compare two things that are at least somewhat similar
User avatar #30 to #21 - tenaciousjon ONLINE (08/27/2013) [-]
Well if you, say... Murdered someone's family, then of course an apology will mean nothing.

But I find that analogy is very general and I got a very "Sorry never means anything" vibe from it.

An apology will mean something if the context is less extreme, like... Breaking your friends game disk by accident. Sure, just buying them a new one would be nice but saying that you're sorry will show them that you regret what you did.

this kills the plate
User avatar #16 - musicaglory (08/27/2013) [-]
Throw a plate on the ground, did it break? Good, now, use a glue called apology to put it back together, now you understand.
#17 to #16 - puffolotti (08/27/2013) [-]
not good for microwave, anymore.

Better not to break it.

I'm not sure why you have red thumbs, you seem to be the only one who understood my point.
#74 to #69 - puffolotti (09/06/2013) [-]
you are lucky, if you are "not sure"
i am lost in british fog. i can't say i give a buck about that, but i hope... I like to hope who red thumbs me is somebody i would exchange my life-path and the quality of my life with.

Time heals almost all mental wounds
Time can never heal this plate

See how ******* stupid this comparison is? Yep, just like yours.
User avatar #34 - brockyboi (08/27/2013) [-]
By this logic you shouldn't apologize.
User avatar #39 to #34 - smittywrbmnjnsn (08/28/2013) [-]
Apologizing helps very little.
That's what this logic is showing.
User avatar #57 to #39 - Durricane **User deleted account** (08/28/2013) [-]
There are plenty of times where I would have forgiven people IF they had apologized to me.
User avatar #63 to #57 - smittywrbmnjnsn (08/28/2013) [-]
Ever as bad as the broken plate in this analogy?
I don't think so.
User avatar #64 to #63 - Durricane **User deleted account** (08/28/2013) [-]
Its just a broken plate, i know it represents someones feelings but dude.. its a plate.

and how would you know? "I don't think so"
User avatar #65 to #64 - smittywrbmnjnsn (08/28/2013) [-]
Because if you've ever felt the way this plate does... you wouldn't consider apologies to be at all helpful.
User avatar #66 to #65 - Durricane **User deleted account** (08/28/2013) [-]
The plate maybe broken, but its a physical thing, time will never repair it, but a person. Time will repair. That plate can be fixed, but only if the sorry person proves he is sorry, and makes the effort to fix it. Them im sure the plate will accept the apology. Then the plate will be better. And I ask again, How would you know? "you wouldnt consider apologies to be at all helpful"
User avatar #67 to #66 - smittywrbmnjnsn (08/28/2013) [-]
If a person takes the effort used in fixing a plate, to genuinely try to make up for their mistake, that's a different thing.
But simply going and saying "I'm sorry" does not repair the damage done.

And I'm going to continue ignoring the "YOU DON'T KNOW MY LIFE" questions, because they're silly to argue for or against.
User avatar #68 to #67 - Durricane **User deleted account** (08/28/2013) [-]
You're thinking of the type of sorry where if you did something wrong, A teacher or your parents would tell you to apologize, you would never willingly do it because, Hey, You really don't give a damn. But the kind of sorry where you KNOW you ****** up, You KNOW you severely hurt that person and you really WANT to take it back, that can have a positive impact on the person you hurt. Its up to them to forgive you. If they did, then it WILL repair the damage. I can tell you are a very immature person. I was asking "Well, how would you know that for sure?" not all teenage "U DON'T KNOW ME"

If you honestly cannot GRASP the concept of a simple apology, then there is just no point in talking to you.
User avatar #70 to #68 - smittywrbmnjnsn (08/28/2013) [-]
I can grasp the concept of an apology, you can't grasp a situation that would be equal to a plate breaking.
Let's say someone comes to your house, has sex with your mother, then your father comes home and sees. Your father stabs your mother, that guy decides he wants to remain un-stabbed, so he kills your dad.

Now, no matter how ******* sorry that guy is, and how much he wants to take it back... an apology would mean close to **** to you.

I have yet to show any immaturity, and how quickly you jumped to that accusation makes me think that YOU, are really the one that needs to grow up.
User avatar #71 to #70 - Durricane **User deleted account** (08/28/2013) [-]
Buddy, I've seen people tell stories more horrible than that and ends with forgiveness.

Guy named Melvin Just marries a woman for the sole purpose of molesting her children, it goes on for YEARS. They tell stories of many different ways he molested them. And when they are all adults, when hes dying, they come to see him and they are sad to hear he is dying.

You're trying to say that there are situations where someone does something unforgivable. If that's YOUR point, You were going about it wrong, Yes, there are unforgivable acts. But No.1 It is completely up to the person to forgive. So to be a total dick, Yes, I would forgive that man for ******* my mom and killing my dad. and No. 2. you were going about it as if there is no such thing as sentimentality. That there is no such thing as forgiveness in any cruel act. You need to get your ******* **** together if all do seem to do is hold grudges against people who hurt your feelings.
User avatar #72 to #71 - smittywrbmnjnsn (08/28/2013) [-]
Are you ******* kidding me?
So, you just accept "Sorry" as an adequate form of exchange when that person killed your parents... without motivation?
I'm sorry to say, but that would be idiotic and naive of you.

You know what my friend did?
He stole $100 from my collection money one time he was over.
I caught him, after he used it to buy lots of useless things.
He said "Sorry", and sure, he meant it, so I accepted his apology.
Later that same week, we were hanging out at my house, and he stole another $400.
When confronted, you know what he said? "Sorry".

Now, if I weren't so ******* stupid, I would have told him "You make enough money to pay me back, and then we're done"... and I wouldn't have become $600 lighter.

Accepting an apology alone, for REALLY bad things, is stupid.

This is ******* retarded.
User avatar #49 - Durricane **User deleted account** (08/28/2013) [-]
The point of the apology is to prove to the person you hurt that you actually feel bad about what you did to them to bring them solace and comfort.

We are at a generation of people, (not just kids) that just don't understand that.

We live in a world filled with assholes.

when a person apologizes and they mean it, it means that they regret or feel bad about doing something bad that they did to you.

I'd rather just finish the job....
#27 - anon (08/27/2013) [-]
Apology is a useless concept. Accept that you have wronged someone instead of apologising, because you can't change the fact that you have done your deeds. Express your regret, but don't expect forgiveness, and don't promise what you can't foresee. An apology will just be rescinded in a matter of days.
User avatar #28 to #27 - Kelevra (08/27/2013) [-]
An apology is how you express regret for your actions to another person. I've never understood that apologizing to someone meant that you were forgiven. It's call doing the right thing because you don't want to be a ****** person. People make mistakes and apologizing doesn't mean you're forgiven, it means you're human enough to express your mistake to others in hopes they understand that you do regret what transgressed. You're a cynical person who will hold a grudge against every slight against you and I feel sorry for the misery that life will bring you.
