Apparently that sort of new thing where everyone is constantly saying “sorry” is really confusing to kids.

“Mommy, why did you say sorry to the grocery store lady?”

“Because I swiped my credit card the wrong way before I turned it around the right way.”

*Blank stare

“Mommy, why did that guy say he was sorry to you?”

“I guess he felt like he was taking too long putting sugar in his coffee and felt bad when he saw us standing behind him waiting.”

*Blank stare

So how do I explain that everyone just spastically says “sorry” all the time for no reason and they don’t actually mean they’re sorry, it’s just an expression?
