Because it's a skill that's missing in our society, here's how to apologize.
1) Acknowledge harm. "I f'd up." 2) State what you did that was wrong, in a way that shows you understand the harm done.
3) Express regret
4) Say what you're going to change to not cause this harm again
Don't ask the hurt person for *anything.* It's up to them to accept or not, if they choose.
Don't be clever. Be plain & simple.
With a mobile phone it can be difficult to fit the whole family into the frame when you're video calling. With Facebook Portal™ you can fit the whole family into your living room, along with Rob from Marketing, Daniel from our AI department and your local police force if they wanna pop in on you. We're all in this together 💙

after this is all over, be sure to remind people, as often as they'll allow you to get away with it, that:
telecoms did not need data caps, had plenty of capacity to donate to low-income folks, and were never in danger of going bankrupt because of the lack of data caps or the additional usage
folks who work on computers all day can do that wherever computers are; most tech offices are merely trophies to show off to other tech offices.
the government wasn't concerned with helping people, it was concerned with helping business. it was people who were helping people and often the government merely got in the way of that.
trillions of dollars was found to allocate as soon as they wanted to; every time anyone asks how anything will be funded it's merely to shut down the conversation.
keep a running list of your favorite facts and get them in front of as many folk as you can, as often as you can, and maybe, just maybe, we can get more folks on board for change
Mostly harmless. I like cars and computers and lots of other stuff too. Mostly I like to fix things.
May the squirrels live with you forever.
