This is mostly for the1withtheeyes with whom I had a conversation about the “Geek Apology” phenom.

Canonical list of non apologies.

Hmmm, this reminds me

This is my favorite apology from my mom explaining her life over the last 15 years, " I am sorry that you feel that I hurt you...so if I did hurt you, sorry. I did not intend for my actions to have that effect on you."

Yeah, I am almost ready to apologize on the level with the big wigs in office. A couple more years dealing with my passive-agressive mother and I will be ready to go.
