Every single day I make something wrong. So, I said "I'm really sorry", "My fault", "I sincerely apologize for doing that". :(

The last time I said sorry it was in this morning. I dropped some water on the floor and my wife slipped. Now she is angry with me. I should have cleaned up the water before it.

The last time I apologize was 13th October. It was my friend birthday and we played games. The winner had to pat other's forehead. And I did that to my Friend and she got pain in her forehead. So I apologized her😁.
