Ashamed of or from? #1 (permalink) Sun Jun 04, 2006 15:55 pm   Ashamed of or from?
 

Dear all

If I make a damaging allegation on you and after a month it is proven wrong/ disapproved, then what would I say to you as an apology?

1- I am terribly ashamed ----------you.
( from, for , before)


Or there is some better substitution?

Ever Yours

Hi Tom

As part of an apology I'd say:
"I'm terribly ashamed of myself."

No, Tom, I wouldn't.

I might say:
"I'm terribly ashamed of myself for doing that to you."

And, just to clarify:

"I'm ashamed of you" would mean that the person you're talking to did something shameful.
