It is Wrong To Say "Sorry" When You Offend Someone, Here Is The Correct Usage

Now let us hop in and start the business of the day. 

So many people have been misusing the term "sorry" without even knowing. We often use it wrongly, thinking we have been using it correctly.

There are two terms in this context;

1. Sorry

2. I am Sorry

The term "Sorry" is used for apology which means you use it when you want to apologise; although there are other usage like "I felt sorry for him". The problem becomes that, people use only the term "sorry" to apologise which is mostly wrong. You can use sorry to exclaim when you want to apologise for something you have caused. E.g Sorry! I didn't see you coming. 

To apologise in this situation without exclaiming, you need to use the second term as the most formal way of apologizing. E.g I am sorry, I didn't see you coming. 

It's improper and rude to simply say "Sorry" in this case because the next angry reply you might get is "You better be sorry for yourself".

Therefore, any time you offend someone, always learn to apologise politely by saying, "I am sorry" instead of "Sorry".

If you lost my property and come back to tell me "sorry", I may insist you provide it because you weren't polite in your mode of apology. 

Bottom line: 

"I am sorry" settle things faster than ordinary "Sorry".
