  • Hi, guys.

  • Um, this is Ronnie, as you know.

  • And you know what?

  • I've bean thinking a lot about the lust, a couple of videos that I've made, and I just really, really I'm just so sorry that I've never thought you guys had to apologize.

  • So here's my apology video.

  • Do you need to learn how to apologize to someone?

  • Let's do it.

  • First of all, you need to figure out what are you apologizing for now?

  • What does this mean?

  • Mm.

  • There's about three different reasons why you need to apologize.

  • One.

  • You did something wrong.

  • Okay?

  • Or you do something bad.

  • Let's say that you see a kangaroo on the street and you just take out your gun and shoot it.

  • That's bad.

  • Okay.

  • No matter how arrogant the kangaroo might seem to you, you just cannot kill them as much as you want to.

  • So what you're gonna do is you're going to admit that you were wrong.

  • Are you going to admit that you did something bad and you're going to say I am so, so sorry that I killed your kangaroo?

  • Now, the trick about English is the more words that you say the more formal or serious.

  • You seem so you can even their win another.

  • So here, if you'd like, you could say I am so, so, so sorry.

  • Helps if you close your eyes a lot.

  • Fake tears are always a good option that I killed your kangaroo.

  • You kangaroo is annoying, but don't say that.

  • Just ending and go off stage.

  • Go.

  • Just That's all you need because you don't want to get into more trouble.

  • Next one.

  • You made him steak, so this could be a work.

  • Right?

  • Okay, So you're You're working.

  • You're doing your best job.

  • You're hungover.

  • But you just made a mistake.

  • And that's normal.

  • That's natural.

  • Why?

  • Because we're humans.

  • But maybe your boss or your co workers angry.

  • So to smooth things over, which means make things good again.

  • You're gonna apologize because you made a mistake and you're gonna say Wow.

  • Oh, that was stupid of me.

  • I'm sorry that I sent the wrong file to my boss.

  • Okay, I just got confused.

  • Blamed some caffeine.

  • Blame it on the coronavirus because of the coronavirus is the greatest excuse right now.

  • Blame it on everything, but make sure you tell them what you're sorry for and apologize.

  • I'm sorry that I sent the wrong file.

  • Please accept my apology.

  • Now there's the thing about accepting an apology.

  • People will say You need to say you're sorry.

  • So you go.

  • Well, I'm sorry.

  • And the people know it's not good enough.

  • What do you mean, it's not good enough?

  • I just apologized.

  • So it's better not to ask them if they accept your apology just straight up, apologize and then carry on stage again one more time.

  • Now, this one, it's a very special one.

  • Mhm.

  • Somebody else is upset.

  • Maybe you said something.

  • Or maybe you did something that the other person didn't like.

  • We use this a lot in our relationship, and I'm getting a feeling it has a lot to do with men.

  • Okay, I have a feeling that women get upset about things because we're very emotional people.

  • Most of us, and you know your boyfriend or your husband or your partner.

  • Somebody else does something that upsets you.

  • So you tell them I'm upset.

  • I want an apology, and that's normal.

  • I do that, um, or you say something that you believe to be true, But other people don't think so.

  • And then they get mad.

  • Okay, so you can very easily say to the people, I'm sorry that you feel that way, but it's not my intention.

  • So you're not really apologizing for something you did?

  • Because, honestly, you don't think you did anything wrong And the other person says, Oh, yeah, he apologized to me.

  • This actually has a cool meaning to It's called a backhanded apology.

  • So that means that you are apologizing, but not really apologizing.

  • But we're not gonna go into that.

  • I'm sorry.

  • Works very well.

  • Um, but make sure you know exactly what the person's angry at because you could get into more trouble.

  • Now, the last one is we use this so much in Canada is so crazy just to be polite.

  • Um, I've talked about this before.

  • I'm going to the supermarket.

  • I have my cart, remember, and somebody walks in front of me.

  • They say I'm sorry.

  • Meanwhile, I kind of walked in front of them.

  • So we say Sorry.

  • Sorry.

  • Sorry.

  • Sorry to be polite to people.

  • Um, if I'm walking behind someone and they don't hold the door open for me, which happens, actually, people say Oh, I'm sorry.

  • I say, Oh, that's cool.

  • I'll get the door myself.

  • That's fine.

  • Eso We use this a lot to be polite.

  • We don't really mean.

  • Oh, my God.

  • I'm so story.

  • I didn't know the door.

  • We're just saying, like, excuse me, it's more.

  • Excuse me, Another way that we say this is my bad things is very common slang expression.

  • My bad.

  • And I was like, Well, that's an apology.

  • Now, that's cool.

  • So, yeah, my apology video is make sure that you know what you're apologizing for.

  • And don't apologize for things that you're not really sorry for.

  • Well, maybe if it's in a relationship, you got to do that.

  • Okay, So good luck out there.

  • I hope everyone has a fantastic time and sorry.
