When he apologized
This time it will be better
never seems to mean,
“I won’t do it again.”
Too true with some people.
I used to tell my kids, “Sorry means I won’t do it again.” However, it doesn’t seem like that’s what it means these days. Parents/kids, students/teacher, couples. “Sorry” seems more often to mean, “If I say this will you stop bugging me so I can go back to doing it until you catch me again?” lol
My ex to a tee lol
I believe it is a common malady.
LOL…I must agree.
Reminds me of another Back in the Day saying, “Sorry didn’t do it. You did.”
Interesting! Tell me more about that usage! I don’t think I’ve ever heard it.
so right – nothing changes…
My late wife only had to say “To be sorry means to do differently”, once or twice. Lesson learned.
My feelings exactly. Wise woman.
Though in Canada we say sorry when someone steps on our foot… 😉
a few very poignant words.
Thank you, Violet.
