- Sorry about this
- 2010-07-16: Another quote from the very much recommended Talk to the Hand: The Utter Bloody Rudeness of Everyday Life about the lack of please, thank-you, excuse me and sorry in today's language:
- Janet Street-Porter, filming a documentary about modern education, "tried to prompt the children at a school assembly to grasp the importance of apology. 'Children,' she said, 'in every family home, there's a word which people find it really hard to say to each other. It ends in 'y'. Can anyone tell me what it is?' There was a pause while everyone racked their brains, and then someone called out 'Buggery?'
