Hummmm... boosts your respect for that physician about 100 points! :spin:
I agree completely. I can understand that sometimes we all get a little frustrated with something and say something we shouldn't. So, I am quick to forgive when someone does that and later apologizes.
2 specific instances come to mind. The first occurred after a physician had been having a really bad day due to some political issues at the hospital: I can't even remember what it was. During the afternoon, he took it out on me. As it was a Friday afternoon and I had no reason I had to stay, I went home. Later that afternoon, he called me and apologized, not wanting me to be upset about it all weekend. I thought that was a nice touch and did not hold a grudge.
On another ocassion, a nursing professor at my graduate school had a good reputation with the students. During my first meeting with her, she was very snippy -- but apologized the next. We worked together on several projects over the next few years. She was only snippy 1 other time -- and she apologized then, too.
I would be happy to work with either one of those people again in a heartbeat.
