It dawns on me now that you were angry with me – if I had known, I would have made it right – I would have cleared up any questions.

Will a sincere, “I was daft. Please forgive me for not knowing myself better and hurting your feelings,” do anything to mend the misunderstanding at this point?

(Oh, wait. That would force you to acknowledge that you have feelings that can be hurt. And, without it being my intention, you’re angry again. But at least this time, it isn’t because I don’t know what I want.)
