This whole "Sorry!" thing is getting old, ladies. You do not need to apologize when you do nothing wrong.
You don't need to apologize to the person who wasn't looking and stepped on your foot. You don't need to apologize if you have wet hair at dinner. You don't need to apologize for someone not holding the door open for you. And for goodness sakes, you don't need to apologize when the other person is late!
Yes, you should apologize when you actually make a mistake (as we all do). Being super late, forgetting to call your mother on her birthday, killing bugs [wait, that's just me? Moving on then...]. Real mistakes that you actually caused? Sure, say you are sorry and mean it.
All the other stuff? I am so tired of hearing women apologizing all day long. It sends a message that shouldn't be sent. Along the lines of "I'm not worthy," and "I'm not important." Are you really not worthy of existing? Are you not as important as the dude in the elevator next to you? Of course you are! Stop apologizing for living your life!
P.S. Don't even THINK about apologizing for apologizing ;).
