comment You can apologise *for* something, but can you apologise *that* something?
No, it's an English word of Greek origin. That's a completely different thing. Also, ἀπολογεῖσθαι does not even mean apologize, as your definition shows, so I don't really see how it is relevant.

@Mari-LouA woah, those are indeed many. Interestingly, one of them is explaining precisely why, in the author's opinion, I apologize that is wrong.

@Pacerier it doesn't, really. Never mind is used to discard something: Never mind me, I'm leaving. I don't see how it would fit in here at all.

comment more professional alternative to offensive phrase
@Mr.ShinyandNew安宇 the basic question is "what is a polite alternative to being dicked around that keeps the irate undertones". That seems reasonably objective and the OP has provided enough context for an answer to be given.

I know this word is used in this context in Spanish and French but I have never heard it used so in English. While the intended meaning might be inferred from its similarity to words like lapse or from knowledge of the Latin meaning, to my knowledge, it is not a word normally used to describe a slip of the tongue in English.
