A letter of apology

St Malphite Road
United States
18th July 2021

Dear Lucian

Please allow me to apologize for wrongly accusing you of stealing my laptop yesterday at the office. My behaviour was extremely unprofessional and lacked the respect you deserved.

Kindly allow me to explain my inappropriate reaction. First, I have been working long and exhausting shifts during the previous weeks. Being deprived of sleep, I was not able to maintain my usual composure. Second, there was a deadline due in one hour and I had a massive amount of work to complete. I was under significant pressure to finish in time.

Consequently, when I returned to my desk after going to the coffee machine, I was considerably alarmed when I noticed that my laptop was not where I originally left it. I made the regrettable mistake to assume that somebody had stolen it in order to prevent me from meeting the deadline. Since you were seated next to me, I assumed it was you. That was very immature of me.

It never occurred to me that the technician could have briefly borrowed my laptop in order to update its software. I forgot that I had requested him to do so. I sincerely apologise to have made a scene in the office. It was embarrassing, and I learned that nobody appreciated my poor behaviour. This will not happen again in the future.

Again, I am sorry for my actions and I hope that we can put this matter behind us. I look forward to working with you soon. If you have any thoughts on this, please feel free to share. You may contact me at your convenience by phone.
