In your own words.
An explanation may help.

Bribery. Works most of the time.

Or you could just not apologize. That works too.

I do agree, sometimes people say sorry for every thing to make themselves seem more polite, when it's just annoying.


In all honesty this is what I do but I truly do mean it every time though.

A running sliding grovel, or in my case just don't. (they allready know.)

I usually pull them away or ask them to talk to them in private and start first by saying sorry.
I then try my god damn best to come up with some things I can say to show that I'm sorry, I usually speak before I think so sometimes I say really sweet things when I apologize or sometimes I say really idiotic things when I apologize.

Tell them you were right and to get over it I have no time for your feelings...

There is only one way to apologize: honestly and sincerely.

The words are less important.

Approach them, look at them in the eye, and say "I'm sorry," It's that easy as long as you are sorry.

Straight up mean it. Don't smile, straight in the eyes and say i'm sorry.

What this guy said.

Timing is just as or more important though. Apologizing while the other person is still heated will only have the opposite effect.

Do it with sincerity and don't make excuses. Own up to the mistake you made, if applicable. Be honest and just hope for the best.
