I want to take a moment to make a public apology here on the blog. I made a post earlier that has since been deleted. In that post I made some accusations towards SATC. I have a LOT of history with that store, none of it good, and I made my post because I thought I was right. But I wasn't, I was wrong.
I had said that my license # appeared on the store front on the revoked list. But that was NOT my SATC license #. I had confused it with another license # that has the same EXACT #'s in it, in the same exact order. I admit that I was wrong, I am human and I made a mistake. I have a TON of license #'s and I got confused. As embarrassed as I am, I am not going to hide from my mistake. I would like to crawl under a rock and pretend it never happened, but I can't do that either. It happened, now I have to own it.
I apologize for my post & I apologize for the rude things I said in the post. I have admitted that I was wrong, as much as I wish I could start this day over I can't. I hope all of you that REALLY know me know how bad I truly feel. At this point I can't do anything more than say I am sorry.
