I’m sorry, Lori

I know, I shouldn’t apologize for linking you, but I’m compelled to do so.

But did you know that in some provinces in Canada, bills have been passed allowing people to apologize without fearing legal liability?

Seriously. Now, if you fuck up, you can say, “I’m sorry” without fear that it will be seen as an admission of guilt in some way, and no one will be able to sue your ass for the act of apologizing.

This would only happen in Canada.

We apologize for everything.

Go apologize to her too.

    I’ve been in a situation before where I’ve accidentally bumped into someone at the mall or something and it risks becoming exactly that, a never ending feedback loop.

    *bump*
    Me: Oh sorry!
    Them: (almost simultaneously) ooop sorry!

    Me: I’m so sorry, I didn’t see you.
    Them: No! Sorry, it’s ok!

    Me: (slight pause) Ok.. sorry! (raise hand a bit in placating motion)
    Them: (returns placating hand motion while we both sheepishly move out of speaking distance)

    Oh we’re a silly lot.
