Your apology doesn’t count if it starts with any of the following:
- I’m sorry you were offended
- I’m sorry you think that
- I’m sorry it upsets you
- I’m sorry you misinterpreted
- I’m sorry, but you
- I’m sorry, but if you had
- I’m sorry. *continues to do the thing they apologized for*
- *sarcastically* Well, sooOOOoOOOoooorry.
if your apology involves calling the person you’re talking to the problem, it isn’t an apology at all.
