Nothing to forgive. Happens a lot to people. Hope you found them.
I had a high school teacher who announced " Nobody is leaving this classroom until I get my eyeglasses back ! "
There was silence for quite a while as we watched him search for them. Then slowly there were a few giggles from my classmates until everyone was onto it and roaring with laughter.
Seems he had pushed/stashed them up on his head. ☺
