Two little words that come with a world of meaning.
1. “I’m sorry” -> Something people say when they genuinely feel remorse for causing a physical, mental or emotional harm to another. It may be accompanied by clothes made of camel hair and rubbing ash on ones self, but that is optional. (Clothes made of polyester DOES NOT COUNT)
2. “I’m sorry” -> This is said when the person is clearly not a fault. They are not apologizing for blame but letting you know they think your involvement in whatever situation in full of the suck.
3. “I’m sorry” -> This is said as a form of “excuse me”. I’ve noticed that people tend to use this version when there’s physical contact.
4. “I’m sorry” -> This is said an warning. The person hasn’t actually done anything yet, but plans to offend the ever-living snot out of you.
5. “I’m sorry?” -> The phrase can be used as a question, meaning “I didn’t catch that”
6. “I’m sorry?” -> This form of the question is used by snobs who are too well bred to actually say “I will fill your vagina with gasoline and use your fake fingernails as sparklers!”
7. “I’m sorry” -> This is truly the worst abuse of the words. This is when they are uttered with no actual meaning pertaining to the words. The user says them because they are expected, but there isno remorse or intent to change the situation.
Any versions you can share with me?
