I’ve come to the conclusion that parents refusing to apologize is a universal thing.
Moms and dads out there just can’t actually form the words “I’m sorry” when they’re talking to their kids…even if they’re wrong. DEAD WRONG.
So they come up with a funny way of saying sorry without actually saying sorry. It’s all very strange, don’t you think?
People on Twitter shared the ways their parents apologize to them and they are pretty hilarious.
1. Oh, that’s a classic.
Have you heard it before?
“Im sorry that you think I owe you an apology”

2. Really? Still?
You’re not over it?
“You’re still upset about that?”

3. Swept under the rug.

7. Over and over again.
Get it together, Dad!

9. The old guilt trip.
“I’m sorry but what you said hurt me. You make me feel like I’m a bad parent. You had no right to say that to me.”
My parents like to guilt trip me a lot 🙂

10. That escalated.
Not a good ending.
*yells at me and makes me cry and then yells at me not to cry*
*acts like nothing happened and expects me to do the same*
“are you fucking kidding me- i’m telling your therapist”

11. No hope.

12. Blame it on the kid.

parents: “you’re so disrespectful!! we MADE you. you should be more grateful!!!”

Did your parents ever “apologize” this way?
If so, please tell us about it in the comments.
Thanks in advance!
