  • “I’m sorry for disturbing you, but I have to ask you a question.”

    “I apologize for disturbing you, but I have to ask you a question.”

    “This news is going to disturb you.”

    Those are all correct. It’s one of those complicated English words! 🙂

  • As it reads now, it’s as though the person to whom you are apologizing finds apologies disturbing and you are deliberately trying to disturb the person by apologizing. Like, if you found my singing annoying and I was purposely trying to annoy you, I would tell you that “I sing to disturb you.”

    The problem lies in combining “apologize” with the infinitive “to disturb”. What you should say is, “I am sorry to disturb you” or “I apologize for disturbing you.”

  • The correct way to say it would be I apologize for disturbing you, I apologize for the disturbance or I apologize for interrupting.

    Mainly, apologize is not in the correct tense for the sentence you’re attempting to create or you’re using the wrong adverb (I think? Basically, the incorrect grammar is due to apologize or the to) after apologize, depending on which sentence option you choose.

  • Sorry To Disturb You

  • I apologize for disturbing you.

    You cannot apologize for something you have not yet done. “To disturb you” suggests one has yet to be disturbed, such as “I will turn the TV down in order not to disturb you.”

  • “I apologize for disturbing you” is what it should be

    or” I apologize if I disturbed you”

    Sorry I cant explain why, but this is how it should look.

    The way it is written makes it sound like you are saying sorry to someone before you actually disturb them. It sounds better to write, “I am sorry for disturbing you.”

  • “to disturb” is an infinitive, which is incorrect in this case. It would be more correct to say “I’m sorry that I disturbed you.”

  • I’m sorry to disturb you.

    I apologize if I disturbed you.
