I’ve invented a word. It’s called an “Acknowledgy.”
It’s when someone is supposed to offer an apology, but falls just short. In fact, it sounds like an apology, but really they’re only acknowledging what that did.
Let’s say, for example, you’re at a restaurant and the bill comes, and you see there’s a whiskey and potato skins you didn’t order adding another $25. You point it out to the waitress and she looks right at you, not blinking, and lets you know that she did it on purpose, hoping you wouldn’t notice.
“Oh! Yeah, I did. Be right back.”
