Some people apologize all the time, for everything. This can be very annoying.
Here’s a conversation:
- Mary: I like ice cream. I don’t want to order a slice of cake. I’m sorry.
- Darlene: Dude, you don’t have to apologize!
A lot of people here in Ireland use ‘Sorry’ in place of 'Excuse me’. Like instead of 'Excuse me, can I speak to you for a second?’, it’d be 'Sorry, can I speak to you for a second?’. Bit awks when you’re outside the country and people ask 'What are you sorry for?’ and you haven’t even registered what you said and like ’ … I’m not sorry?’
Yes, that’s also a thing.
