Forgiveness isn't something one is entitled to just for apologizing. Forgiveness has to be earned. Sometimes that can be easy--so easy it seems like apologizing _is_ all it takes--but other times it isn't. It depends on the circumstances, the people involved, whether or not it was an accident, how hard one tried to make amends, and how good the apology was in general ("I'm sorry you felt hurt by what I said," and apologies that try to solicit symathy for the apologizer aren't good attempts).

@Lexi I found this implausible because of the use of the word "snoot" and then I looked it up. It really is a thing and it's a heckin' powerful statement.
