Bashful Brits apologise up to eight times a day and often for other people’s mistakes, a survey has revealed. That’s nearly 3,000 apologies a year, and over 200,000 concessions a lifetime, according to figures from research carried out by the New York Bakery Co.

If “sorry” is your first response to a commuters’ jostle even though it’s not your fault they’re in the way, or when your food order is wrong you definitely asked for the blueberry one, then you could be among the survey’s one in eight Brits that apologise over 20 times a day.

Strange Random Apologising Quote:

It is a good rule in life never to apologize. The right sort of people do not want apologies, and the wrong sort take a mean advantage of them. – P.G. Wodehouse, The Man Upstairs
