Sample Answer of Describe a Time when Someone Apologized to You
Well, many times, it can be seen that people wittingly or unwittingly hurt the other person, and if the relationship is true, then friends make a compromise. A similar situation was experienced when I purchased two tickets to watch a movie with one of my best friends. Actually, I didn’t want to watch a movie, but my friend suggested I watch a movie. So being a friend, I didn’t want to hurt her, and I purchased the tickets. And we promised to meet near the entrance of the premises. I was very happy because after a long working weekday, I had some spare time for entertainment, but when my friend didn’t turn up. It spoilt my mood, and I was very anxious as well as angry. I still continued to wait for another half an hour, and the entry to the theatre had been closed. So there was no other option but to go back. When I reached home, then I didn’t talk to any person, and my friend came to my home. She told me that her bike got punctured and it took such a long time to repair. She apologized for not being punctual. After listening to her, I forgot everything and took a promise from him not to show such kind of behaviour in future, and she again apologized for hurting me. So that was the time when my friend apologized.
