The Simple Canadian Sorry
The most basic use of “I’m sorry.” Can also be shortened to the simpler “Sorry,” or amended to the slightly more loquacious “Sorry about that.” Used primarily after making unwanted physical contact with another person in a public place.
- Eye contact: Not required.
When bumping into someone as you exit a revolving door; when stepping on someone’s foot as you take your seat in a theater; when backing up into someone in an elevator.
Must be delivered quickly and without inflection. If using either of the longer versions, you must run the words together (i.e., “I’msorry,” or “Sorrybouthat”).
- Sample sentence: “Sorry, I didn’t see you.”
- Actual meaning: “I’m in a hurry and you’re in my way.”
