每日一字 : sorry

每日一字 : sorry

Sorry, sorry, sorry!
Sorry, sorry, sorry!

喺西方人嘅世界裏面
有一個笑話
係話加拿大人最鍾意講 sorry
自己冇唔啱又 sorry 一餐
明明係人哋唔啱又 sorry 一餐
(利申:I’m a proud Canadian)
其實唔淨止加拿大人
香港人寫 email 都好習慣 say sorry

Sorry to disturb you!
I’m sorry to tell you that…
Sorry for any inconvenience caused.
We are sorry that the product is out of stock at the moment.

令到客人失望嘅話梗要 say sorry
不過如果有時係情有可原
又或者係人哋有事相求
自己有充分理由推搪
Say sorry 會唔會太卑微
或者有啲此地無銀呢?

如果你都覺得會嘅話
Miss Joey 有辦法幫到你!

個辦法就係下次有同樣情況嘅話
就試吓用 I’m afraid 吖!
唔係話你驚啲乜
而係同中文一樣嘅「我恐怕…」
譬如:

I’m afraid this is a discontinued product that is no longer available for ordering.

I’m afraid Mr. Fallon is not in his office at the moment.

We are afraid that the interview cannot be rescheduled.

I’m afraid I can’t make Wednesday. Does Thursday work for you?

以上嘅講法,禮貌得嚟不失自信,幾好啊!希望你哋都啱用啦!
