If my wife picked up a Mishloach Manos to be “Zoche” [legally acquire as an agent] for a man and it never got to him because it was eaten up by my kids. Do I have to ask him forgiveness for it, or was it never acquired to him because it was picked up by a woman?
Could a woman be “Zoche” [legally acquire for him as an agent] for a man?
Yes, she can perform an acquisition for him, and hence the Mishloach Manos became his. It would seem an apology is befitting to the sender and intended receiver of the Mishloach Manos.
