Never have a problem saying sorry when I've legitimately farked up.

However, I've noticed something about making amends. When people don't allow other people to make amends for their fark up, the offended person almost always ends up holding a grudge, and the offender feels always on the hook for their fark up. Making amends is a good way to put it past both of you, so the relationship can move on.

I believe in taking responsibility for my fu*k ups.

People who adopt a rigid "never apologize" philosophy because they saw some John Wayne movie when they were teenagers tend to be assholes.

Skink Wrangler: Even as a stereotypical chronically apologizing Canadian, it yet grinds my gears at the (mostly) media-driven fetishizing of the "official" apology by whatever corporation, government or other agency for some ancient grievance, inevitably accompanied by a "show-me-the-money" response.

That said, as a descendant of United Empire Loyalists, where are my apology and reparations, Americans?


Yeah! Preach it brother!

Ancestor from Saratoga, NY, fought for the Crown.

Hey Yanks:  your "Independence War" was actually a Civil War.   You were all British subjects until you won... and 20,000 'Americans' fought on the British side.

The Canadian 'sahrry,' like the 'eh,' can only be pulled off properly by natural born Canadians or long time residents. Anyone else trying doesn't do it right and quickly becomes exposed as a foriegn infiltrator who may be a threat to the strategic maple syrup reserve. This is the primary means by which we secure our borders.

My "stop saying your sorry" moment came after an epiphany during a mushroom trip over a long, long time ago. Since then, I have become very specific with how I express my emotions and reactions to things. My use personal psychoanalysis has only grown since then and encompassed my life beyond my choice in phrasing and now dictates my behavior in public and professional settings.

And it all started from a drug induced realization that too many apologies dilutes not only your apology, but other people's perception of your character.

/don't do drugs kids.

It's kind of cool for an iconic fictional character. In real life, it just makes you a major dick.

I've never heard a Canadian say sorry. Then again they don't seem to do as much stupid shiat they should be sorry for.
