    Re: I am sorry to have kept you waiting

    Yes, there is a big difference. Sentence 1 is grammatically correct. Sentence 2 is grammatically incorrect. If you add "for" after "sorry", sentence 2 will be correct.

    Note that I have changed your thread title. Titles should include some/all of the words/phrases you are querying, and should be unique and relevant to the thread in question.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
