I rarely say sorry. I find people use the words "sorry" and "thank you" really lightly, I think that devalues them. I don't use those words unless I really mean it and think I did something that deserves their use.

People say sorry to me a lot at school, 99% of the time I have no idea why they're apologizing. Say for example I'm standing talking to some friends, someone walking by has to turn sideways to walk by and they say sorry as they go past. What are they saying sorry for? They didn't even do anything, that happens to me all the time.

To use the example of missing the dart board and hitting the wall. I missed the board, big deal, what do you expect when you're throwing darts at a circle on a wall? The only reaction you'd get from me is a mild swear word and a laugh.

I don't use the word sorry often, but when I do, I rarely meant it. Usually, I pretend to be sorry just to keep the person's feeling who I said sorry to. But sometimes I do meant it.

If people take responsibility for their actions, a 'sorry' isn't usually necessary.

Its something forced upon you by parents when your younger, its only when you get older that it means something.

I don't usually say sorry, since I was always yelled at as a kid for doing things bad and saying sorry to cover it up.
The teahcers would tell me "You're not sorry, otherwise you wouldn't have done it!" Although I was usually yelled at for an accident. But I do say sorry if I accidentaly do something, but not on purpose.

Well i am 16 but not your typical teenager,I am really polite unless the adults i am with are chill and don't care if you use manners or not. I always say "Sorry","Thank You" and "Please" and mean it everytime i say it.

I say it when I mean it, which isn't often.

I think everyone over uses it at one point or another.
