25 Hilarious Things People Have Actually Had To Apologize For

I was going to cheap out here and just post literally any Adele lyrics by way of an intro, but then I felt like I'd want to apologize for that, and apologizing for underachieving on an article about apologies just seemed way too meta and also indicative of my life at this point that I decided against it. 

Apologies are interesting in that they can be both very heartfelt and touching AND absolutely worthless, depending on the intentions behind them. For example, you recently went through a breakup that stemmed primarily from your own bad behavior, and you still want to win the other person back. You formulate your apology (the same one, for the sake of the two coming situations) and ring up your ex, ask for a sit-down and deliver the many ways in which you regret your actions and how they've negatively affected your relationship. Good on ya, friendo, you're half way there.

Now, the sincerity of your apology comes in the next step. If you apologize solely because you want the other person to know how bad you ACTUALLY feel and how you regret hurting them, and then accept that you might have to watch them walk away from you all over again and be okay with that, you've delivered a sincere apology. If on the other hand, you bitch and moan and whine and flail and get angry with that person for not simply hopping back into the love boat with a hole in it with you, then you're a self-serving, manipulative bastard. Sorry!
