A typically English exchange

Posted: September 12, 2014 in Random wifflings

Today I was riding back from Benny’s school. A small white dog stepped onto the canal towpath, five or so feet from my bike. I braked gently. “Sorry,” I said to a woman with another dog coming toward me. “Sorry,” she replied.

It was the dog that surprised me. I came nowhere near it, and it was not the woman’s in any case.

    We do like to say sorry even when it is not our fault and they better say sorry back…! It’s like a polite way of asking for an apology…
