    no problem * your delay

    Dear Friends,

    Suppose that someone is apologizing because he is late. You want to answer with this formula: "No problem ... your delay." What is the correct preposition?

    The best would be "about", but I think it could be better said.

    Re: no problem * your delay

    the word "regarding" seems a good alternative
    (there is no problem regarding your delay)
    but it's easier to just say something like it doesn't matter
    eg. -i'm sorry i'm late
    oh, it doesn't matter
