That's こんにちは (Type kon'nichiha), and I suspect you're in the wrong thread.

Not REALLY polite. That would be something like

どうもすみませんでした。私めは__さまのおしゃることをおわかりになりませんでした。
Except not, because I suck at polite language :D

Wow, I can't believe you suck at anything. :p

Anyway, you went the wrong way there. It should be ...__さまのおっしゃったことがお分かりいたしませんでした(けれども)。 Does anyone use め as a humble suffix anymore? I thought that that was old fashioned, but I could be wrong.

Believe me - if I ever have to actually use this stuff for something other than a cheap joke I'll be researching it before posting. :D

_さんの おっしゃることが理解できないのでしたが。。。

is the only thing I am absolutely certain is more polite than wakarimasendeshita.
