I know people don’t like to hear excuses, but a bunch of teenagers really did beat me up and knock me into a coma. This was not my choice, and has likely been just as inconvenient for me as it has for you.
At this time, I would appreciate a little mercy, and I would like for you to try to understand, and quit giving me negative reviews online.
I couldn’t have possibly forseen this, and I’m terribly sorry that it happened.
Please forgive me.
I sent this message to 8 different couples.
Those who did respond, didn’t make much of my requests for mercy.
But what else can I say? What could I have done to have prevented this?
Being a wedding coordinator is tough; there’s countless expectations of you, and just about no room for error. People put their “Big Day” on your shoulders, and they demand nothing less than perfection.
Also on my shoulders — a brain with a consciousness lying dormant.
There’s not much worse than getting yelled at on the phone while youre still recovering in a hospital bed.
Besides maybe getting knocked into a coma in the first place.
But heck it’s been a struggle.
I only answered because I thought I would hear, “Get better!” or a “My God, that’s terrible!”
Boy was I wrong.
How exactly did I “ruin everything,” when I was in a condition where I couldn’t do anything at all?
My misfortune wasn’t any sort of “cruel and intentional sabotage.”
I worked hard to get where I was, and it seems now I’ll have to work extra hard to restore my reputation.
And I’ll have to be more cautious of teenagers too.
