I recently wrote a scathing letter about a person…only to discover that the complaint about him had not been communicating accurately.
So, I took a breath and made the call to the person I'd complained to. And then I apologized, agreed to do whatever is necessary to rectify the problem and then ate crow.
I could have found excuses or just let the letter lie. Instead, I did the right thing, redeemed myself to all involved and won the admiration of all.
So, in this case, while it's hard to eat, once you do try to devour it, Crow Tastes Good!
