John Laws apologises to Neil Mitchell’s answering machine

August 6th, 2009 at 09:55am

Remember that ridiculous sparring match between John Laws and Neil Mitchell last week?

Well it turns out that Lawsie came to his senses a few hours later, and asked Neil Mitchell’s answering machine to pass on an apology.

[..] the matter is unlikely to wind up in court. Mitchell told Green Guide that Laws left an apology on his answering machine the afternoon of the incident.

‘‘He said, ‘Please pass my apologies to Neil, I might have overreacted’, which was a very decent thing to do. And I left a message on his machine saying, ‘Thanks for the message, appreciate it’. It’s all over, as far as I’m concerned.’’

Who would have thought that the answering machine would become the modern-day equivalent of the legal secretary?

    Apologising to an answering machine is just not normal!

    That’s what I thought. Leaving an apologetic message is one thing, asking the answering machine to pass the message on is another entirely. I’m willing to bet that John doesn’t have an answering machine.

    As long as he doesn’t pick up the phone again…
