When a person of German heritage makes an egregious and obvious mistake and is unwilling or incapable of offering a sincere apology, but rather tries to mask an apology through carefully chosen words.
Ex 1. German Apology to Wife: " I am sorry if you misunderstood or didnt hear me when I told you that I was going to the Jets game on Sunday"
Ex 2. When an Irish wife falls in a hole walking home from a party after asking the German husband to call for a cab to take them home. German Apology: "I'm sorry that you felt it necessary to drink so much and stay at the party so late that you tripped and stumbled into that hole and hurt your ankle"
