    ''Don't worry'' & '' Never mind''

    What is the difference between ''Don't worry.'' and ''Never mind.'' ?
    Could anyone tell me ?

    For example, in the following, Which is better, ''Don't worry.'' or '' Never mind.'' ? Or both phrases will do?

    A:'' I'm sorry I'm late.''
    B:'' ( )''

    Thank you.

    Don't worry strikes me as better. I use it more to show it's OK, while never mind is more to calm people down.
