I commented on a status message. My genuine reply was construed as a 'smart retort'. I cared enough to apologize, but it wasn't accepted.
I remained mad for a day, then decided it wasn't worth it any more. He told me he had "forgiven" me the previous night.
"Easier for you", I said. "I apologized. You haven't yet."
"Sorry doesn't exist between friends", I was told.
I disagree. The word may be unnecessary, but you need to know he accepts his guilt.
