Not saying sorry

A reader sends this story:
Lynne Truss was lamenting the fact that no one seems to say "I'm sorry" anymore. A school teacher asked her class "What word that ends in R-Y isn't used at home very much and should be used more often?" Finally a puzzled looking kid raised his and and said "Buggery?".
Usually we hear what some people call a non-apology apology. I make my kids say that they are sorry to each other.
