Apologising – Situational Dialogues – How to say
I’m afraid I’ve spilt ink all over the tablecloth.
Oh, never mind about that.
I’m terribly sorry. Won’t you let me pay for it?
No, I won’t hear of it.
I’m awfully sorry, but I seem to have mislaid your scarf.
Oh, don’t worry about that.
I just don’t know what to say. I’ll replace it, of course.
No, that’s quite out of the question.
I’m very much afraid I’ve burned a hole in the rug.
Oh, that’s all right.
I do apologise. I’ll buy you a new one first thing on Monday.
Of course not. I never did like it anyway.
I’m dreadfully sorry, but I’ve broken a plate.
Oh, that doesn’t matter.
I’m ever so sorry. Tell me where you bought it so I can get you
No, certainly not. I wouldn’t dream of letting you do that.
