Easier this way.

I thought I made a mistake, once . . .but I was wrong.

Nobody wants to believe they're wrong, and maybe have been wrong their whole life.

infallibility and certitude are two different things, often confused when looking at others.

Prostrate yourself at their feet. Weep and wonder at their magnificence. Kiss the ground on which they walk. Stretch your arms toward the heavens thanking them for the blessing of their presence with solemn praise.

At which point they will probably go away. And never come back. Problem solved.
