@Faulty Wiring: How do you know the Kiwi Nathan? His last name starts with a P? I’m trying to leave my e-mail as the bold click-on URL of my name, otherwise humor me here please. Sorry folks, thum-boo me to hades if you must, but this IS about forgiving inconveniences, after all…

“Because the important activity (read: monkeys), is gone on a sightseeing tour by you (and by “you” I mean you monkeys) bring about forgiving inconveniently (exaggerated genuflection, obsequiousness), please.

Problem solved.

And exactly what is the important activity that caused this “is” fellow to go on a sightseeing tour? Maybe a meeting with “was”?

When the important activity is away, the inconveniently forgiving will play.

The person in charged has gone on an important activity, a sight seeing tour to bring you more products to the museum. Sorry for any inconvenient.

I won’t be bringing my forgiving, much less inconveniently. You have to ask me nicely.

If it’s on a sightseeing tour, I suppose it will be kind of inconvenient to forgive it–should I leave a note?
