I was hanging out at a pals place the other day and this was on the wall. WT…H..F..IZIT? I mean I know its a Jet Drive Outboard, but? And it doesnt work. And of course now we want to try and get it to work. Why? I have no idea. I suppose like the Dragon Fly Outboard from a while back. Clearly they are a bit of a one hit wonder. If they were even a wonder. But Here it iz, and there has to be someone out there that knows more.
I did do an internet search and they do appear on some forums with the same question, and same clueless answers. So the bar is really low today, and that is low. Like OceanGate low….. Oh boy.. too soon? Anyway, like I said, its a low bar. Hold on, I am being called by the Woody Boater HR Dept. They want me to issue an apology to the people offended by my OceanGate Joke., I need to get it all cleared by HR and out PR dept so its crafted perfectly. Okay.. Here is what they wrote.
I hope this message finds you well. I am writing to offer my sincere and heartfelt apology for a recent incident where I made an inappropriate OceanGate joke that offended and hurt some individuals. I deeply regret my thoughtless actions and the pain they may have caused.
First and foremost, I want to express my genuine remorse for the insensitivity I displayed in making light of a subject that is important to many people. It was inconsiderate and disrespectful of me to make light of such a sensitive topic, and I fully acknowledge the hurt that my words may have caused.
I understand that humor can be subjective, and what may seem harmless to one person can deeply affect another. It was a lapse in judgment on my part to make the joke without considering the potential impact on others, and I take full responsibility for my actions.
I would like to assure you and anyone else who was affected by my remarks that it was never my intention to demean or belittle the significance of OceanGate or the work they do. I have since realized the gravity of my mistake and the importance of being mindful of the impact my words can have.
Moving forward, I commit to being more considerate and thoughtful in my language and actions, understanding that even in light-hearted moments, it is crucial to respect the feelings and beliefs of those around me. I will strive to educate myself further on matters that I may not fully comprehend to avoid making similar mistakes in the future.
If you are open to it, I would appreciate an opportunity to meet with any of the survivors personally or speak over the phone to express my sincere apologies and listen to any concerns or thoughts you may have. I genuinely value your perspective and would like to learn from this experience to become a better person.
Once again, I am truly sorry for my inappropriate joke and any distress it caused. Please accept my heartfelt apology, and I genuinely hope that you can find it in your heart to forgive me for my insensitivity.
Thank you for taking the time to read this letter, and I look forward to the possibility of making amends.
