Public announcements of "forgiveness," the new(well, not so new) politically correct trend.
This irritates me. Look, if the person who's behaved badly, has injured you
by doing so, fine. If you're just a spectator? Announcements like that are nothing but polishing one's ego, IMO. It's a way to demonstrate how much bigger a person you are than the offender. Spotlight grabbing.
A man who cheats on his wife? His colleagues are not the ones who need to decide to forgive or hold him to account for his behavior. The wife's part of this was barely mentioned at all. If I were in her shoes, I'd want them all to shut up and let her and her husband sort this out minus the peanut gallery.
