NFT: Apologies

Beezer : 7/12/2017 1:20 pm
We've made them. We've received them.

Was talking about this a couple days ago with a co-worker. Thought it was interesting, at least lower-level interesting, how people believe apologies should or shouldn't go.

For example, is saying to someone "I apologize" an actual apology? I'm not a fan.

I'd at least like to hear someone say they're sorry, or they regret their words or actions. They don't have to pour it on. But at least a little effort, some sincerity, can go a long way.

Where do you stand on this important, pressing issue?
it depends on the person its coming from

also people usually type the word "apologies" in email, I rarely hear it in an actual conversation.
who the F are you? Larry David?

I apologize and I'm sorry mean the exact same thing.

If someone does something wrong and they say to you I apologize vs I'm sorry how does that seem different to you?
If someone states "I apologize"...

...presume English isn't their first language and accept. :D
I don't consider it a sincere apology

No you're not - you're just sorry the rest of us have to put up with it!

are they really sorry?
I'm never wrong so I never need to apologize.

I'm sorry. But I love both of you. So, apologies.

That's another nuance to the whole apology thing. Like the idiot who's in the courtroom, saying he's sorry for whatever. He's not sorry. He's sorry he got caught.
I think Billy Eckstine sounded sincere

I only know one way to apologize ....  
Beer Man : 7/12/2017 5:31 pm : link
I always use say I apologize.  
leatherneck570 : 7/12/2017 5:58 pm : link
So if that's not "enough" for you... well then I apologize.
I say I'm sorry. I don't say I apologize

When I'm getting an attempted apology, the thing that's probably most important is that you make me believe it. Which shouldn't be difficult, assuming you actually are sorry.
I apologize,I m sorry

Both suffice, as long as they are not followed by a "but".
