    Sometimes I can't help but feel like the bottom.

    thank you

    This is great. X3 Can I post it to Tumblr? I would credit your and the source.

    So many people need to learn the difference between the two...

    Who wouldn't like adorable green griffins

      They eat all the cookies though

        That is a problem. I like cookies. But LS is just so cute that I couldn't stay mad at her D:

    Finally someone says it!

    Sadly not a lot of people know the term 'Apologising' these days. The 21st century generation is a rather sad state of affairs.

    God its not even an internet only problem... I k now like five people at least I'd like to staple this to lol

    This is how the internet works. Though before internet and colour TV it was commonplace to just drive around to the next town (by car or BY CART) and just look for trouble, as entertainment. So the world of social trolling is not really a new thing at all!

    BLESS

    I'm not really sure there's a distinction. Besides, if you 'accept' the bottom apology, and it wasn't sincere, it'll irritate the hell out of the offender...

  • Link

    I agree fully, but can I nitpick for just a tiny moment? xD Just to share a neat thing.

    Apology used to mean only "a reasoned argument or writing in justification of something, typically a theory or religious doctrine." and it comes from the Greek apologia (a speech in one's own defense). So to historic persons, the bottom would be an apology and the top a confession. xD

    (Not that this is the case today. Words change meanings.)

      I expect nitpicking on the Internet. Not surprised.

      • Link

        Perhaps birbs should call it nitpecking instead.

  • Link

    Reasonable distinction, but naturally you should never expect either - there is no right not to be offended.

  • Link

    ... Although thinking about it again, the only case I can see in which the bottom one would indeed be a "nonpology" is if you deliberately set out to offend the other person, in which case you probably wouldn't be apologising at all. If you said something which incidentally offended someone, they took the offence rather than you setting out to offend them, so it's their problem. Hmm.

      I think you're reading too much into this XD

  • Link

    I agree with you. Sadly most people now don't know what that means.

  • Link

    The latter feels like something i'd say to someone who got all pissy over something stupid.
    If people want drama, that's probably what they'll expect (except it's stupid, so idon't take part of it).

    Either way, this is priceless and well done X3

  • Link

    this is so perfect

    • Link

      :)

        If I had a nickle for every time I've seen the latter passed off as an apology, I'd be pushing like $8. :T

    Excuse me, I have a PHD in Internet language fuckwadery and would like to protest your use of the word 'internet' as im currently viewing this post offline. I expect your response in thesis form. Thank you.
