    Yes, a huge peeve! Also, the “if you were offended” structure is NOT an apology!

    Generally, anyone who says you shouldn’t be offended is being offensive. I don’t know why they think no one notices.

      An apology followed by an excuse is not a real apology and the person offering an insincere apology will probably do again whatever he or she did that warranted an apology in the first place.
