As someone who inadvertantly--or sometimes on purpose--offends people by being honest and, I admit, mouthy I believe in good manners, but not in apologies. Homey tells it like she sees it. I have given up apologising for who I am. I apologise if I accidently step on someone's feet, or bump them in the store aisle or the like, but I no longer try to be friends with everybody, nor do I apologise for being myself. They either "get" me, or they don't. I have a thicker skin after 60 years on the planet. Maybe experience helps. Maybe that's what Kim needs. It's literally impossible to make everybody happy. After a while of trying to do that, you tend to start losing your true self. And it isn't worth it.
