OK OK IM SORRY IM SORRY

I know its been a week and I kept my public waiting. I am oh so sorry.



With that taken care of - lets discuss apologies. The infamous "I'm Sorry" . Something we were forced to say to our siblings when we didnt want to, forced to tell our parents so we werent grounded, and now are forced to tell significant others so they shut up once in a while. So how much clout does "sorry" really have. Of course there are the times where you can tell how sincere someone is about it, but even then how many apologies can you handle before you just dont listen to them anymore?

The sorry shit only lasts for so long before you start to question if they are actually apologetic or if they just hope that what worked previously to solve an issue actually does. Only apologize if you are actually wrong dammit. Theres been plenty of times where I do not apologize when I feel I had done nothing wrong, I am not going to compromise what I feel because someone else thinks its right.

So what is the current status of sorry today? I would think with the amount we are forced to say it as kids, we just come to find that it is simply a statement that makes things all better. Mom and Dad make you say it, you do, and life goes on right? Not when you are adults however. I just wonder if people toss it around like they do four letter extravaganzas and words that can be transcribed with @ and # symbols and other assorted Shift+number symbols.

I appreciate you taking the time to read this entry, and if you didnt enjoy it, Im sorry?
