The Slightest excuse,
“Please forgive me. I am extremely sorry.”
Other than that,
“Please excuse me”.
It’s a wonder that people say it, even when they are unconcerned.
“So sorry, the reservation is not available.”
Why would you be sorry, if any reservation is not available?
If you have done your job right, then all is well and good. You needn’t be sorry.
But courtesy teaches us that we must be sorry even if there isn’t a single fault of ours.
The slightest excuse is a big farce in truth, for if you don’t mean an excuse from your heart, it doesn’t mean a dime to anyone. But excuses aren’t meant to be from the bottom of one’s heart? Is it?
