This word is overused. There are too many sorry excuses for things being so sorry. You may be sorry I said this and I am sorry if you took it the wrong way. What I really wanted to say was ” excuse me!” but it wound up being more like my problem than yours. Like you were ill and when I texted you were sick and I said, ” sorry.” I don’t know if that means that I am sorry you’re sick or sorry that I bothered you.
Justin Bieber has a song called, ” Sorry.” Is that why my ears hurt from trying to understand why so many people are sorry ( in one way or the other.)
