  • Thanks for that. I think.

  • I don't know, I feel like it's not even really sorry about anything--just putting on an act. Being sorry you got caught is still sorry, in a sense. But "I'm sorryish" is more like--gee, did I step on your foot? Oh, well... you probably deserved it.

    That's my take on it anyway. And if you don't like it, well... I'm kind of ambivalently sorry about that.

  • Ah. Now I get it. Your basic non-apology.

  • I think it's more like "I'm sorry I got caught."

  • Oh...whoops.

    October 18, 2007

  • I think of it more like: "Oh... whoops."

  • So this is somewhere between "My heartfelt apologies" and "Oh. Uh...I really didn't mean to do that"?

  • Wow. This is an excellent word for a pre-existing concept!
