I think since the title is misunderstandings, John would have said something like ''I'm sorry, I was in a hurry (...)'' and there put some emergency like: fire in the mill, family emergency, anything that might justify John being in a hurry and not even stoping for one second to offer her help to get up. To this Margaret might add ''You didn't even said you were sorry''. He might say ''It was an emergency, there isn't time to waste on an emergency''. And here she might add ''It doesn't take much time to say 'sorry', it's just one word, at least that is what a gentleman would have done'' . I mean, that is how i would picture it happening.
