    Default sorry for having bothered you/sorry to have bothered you

    Hi everyone,
    Situation: You called someone to ask about something, you want to apologise for having taken their time, you say:
    1. Sorry for having bothered you.
    2. Sorry to have bothered you.
    3. Sorry I bothered you.

    Please let me know if any of these are wrong.
    Thank you.

    They are all correct, but I'd say 'Sorry to bother you'.
