DEAR MISS MANNERS: A client came in for tax season. We only see each other once a year. Anyway, in she came for her appointment; I came from around the corner in the office, saw her sitting/waiting, and greeted her with, “Oh! When are you due?” She looks about five to six months pregnant, but ISN’T!!!
We proceeded to discuss drinking enough water, medications, doctor visits, blood tests, etc. But the fact of the matter is she isn’t pregnant. How do I apologize for assuming? Should I apologize?
Has you ever made a blunder like this? What did you do to make amends?
