Sorry seems to be the hardest word

When I was younger, my sister would always sing “sorry seems to be the hardest word” by the late Sir Elton John. I always wondered why saying sorry seems to be that hard. I was brought up to say PLEASE, when I want something; THANK YOU when given things and SORRY when I did wrong. The circle of friends I grew up with, were apparently brought up the same way.

As I grew older, I noticed not everyone were taught their manners.

Nowadays, I noticed the younger generation would continue their way after bumping into you, as if nothing had happened. People would say hurtful things without thinking about other people’s feeling. I don’t know whether they meant to do the things they did or are they just uncouth.

Anyway, following my “hELLo” quiz, let’s learn a few words that means “I’m sorry”
