I heard that many years ago -- "Apologies Never Contain the Word 'But'"

Naturally, it's a generalization, but the meaning is that a sincere apology is pretty simple.

It's not, "I'm sorry I said that, but you never should have ....."

In marriage, Church, business, family..... when we are truly sorry for something we did, it should be stated clearly and should not be a preface to blaming somebody for our own actions.

I love it when we, on Tweb, make a clear apology for something we did or said or typed. I'll almost ALWAYS amen that. (except, of course, the phony apologies that will now be offered in attempt to gain an amen.)

On a lighter note, it puts me in mind of Fonzi's "I was wrrrrr.. wrrro... I was wrrrroooo... ok, so I wasn't exactly right!"

A sincere apology will, indeed, admit we were wrong.

They could conceivably contain "butt", though. As in, "I'm sorry I didn't automatically say "no" when you asked "Does this make my butt look big?"

Being a pirate means never having to say you're sorry

how about "I am sorry you are such a complete idiot, Mickiel, but, bless your heart, maybe your momma dropped you on your head when you were a baby. And then when she bent over to pick you up, she accidentally kicked you out of the window where you bounced on your head and into the street and got run over by a truck"
