Sunday Poser

Sadje is our hostess for the Sunday Poser question This week her question is:

How quick are you in admitting your mistakes?

I will definitely admit to my mistakes as soon as I make them. I have found myself wanting to think up ways to justify the mistake or make it lesser than maybe it is, but in the end just saying “I made a mistake” is so much easier than coming up with some story to enrich it.

A perfect example is the other night. I was cleaning the pool and because there is a small leak somewhere, we constantly have to fill it a little. After skimming the junk off the top I turned off the water and went inside. I thought I turned off the water. About an hour later I was in the bathroom washing my small paint brush and I heard what sounded like the hose running. Yup, you guessed it! I must have turned it on higher instead of off because the pool was almost overflowing! Woops.

Now, that isn’t a perfect example as it didn’t really affect anyone or anything like that but it is so much easier to say “I almost overflowed the pool because I didn’t turn the water off correctly” than to go on about how I thought it was off but maybe it wasn’t, I didn’t hear the water running, I never make mistakes like that…etc.

Additionally, I would rather say that I made a mistake than for someone to “figure out” it was me! That seems too sketchy and I hate liars….just saying.
