I was asked to apologize to someone for something that I did not feel needed an apology. Thinking that I might be a complete jerk, I sought the advice of others but found that I'm far from alone in my opinion. In fact, nobody else I'd spoken with believed an apology was in order.

However, for the sake of making peace I figured I'd give it a try. I politely asked whether the 'someone' in question had a moment to talk, and the answer was a rude -- albeit simple -- "No." If before I had felt any obligation, I now definitely feel none at all.
