Generic Apology, it’s a phrase I learned from Durham. You use it when you feel like you need to apologize before reciting or presenting something. You just say “generic apology” and begin what you were about to say. While I agree that it is helpful for saving time, I wish it wasn’t necessary. I wish people could just be happy with their work. Now, don’t get me wrong, I understand the apology if it’s because you didn’t finish something and it’s a rough draft, but if it’s something that you spent time and effort on, there’s no need to apologize. I’m sorry, but I feel like people should be more confident in their work. That’s all.
