Do you have a habit of saying "sorry" a lot?

I sort of do. I'm one of those people who could have someone accidentally step on MY foot and I'll be the one to say sorry. 😂

I was at a register getting ready to pay for food and my wallet falls off the counter onto the floor and the cashier said sorry to me with a worried look on his face and I just started cracking up like "what are you saying sorry for?"

  • Oh yeah, confirmed :D
    I'm also generally the person who says sorry... maybe to some extent because I'm rather skinny so I have an interest in avoiding conflict - I'd be pinned to the ground by the average guy using just one hand :o
    If one day we meet we'll both say sorry instead of "how are you?" haha...

  • There is a video, that really brought this to my attention:
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=p73-30lE-XE
    Why do women apologize, for just being there, being themselves?
    I've called out, a few at work, and asked them why!! They say it is just being a 'lady'.
    I say BS!! You have just as much right to be there as a man! If you almost collide in a hallway, why do you, as a woman apologize? Aren't you an EQUAL?

    by the way, I love the part, at the end of the video, when she says, "Sorry, NOT sorry' taking the blanket!!

  • I don't think... But I'm not entirely sure.
    I feel I tend to react slow enough to things where I just kind of give a blank stare for a couple and analyze the situation first... Either that or I overthink things and my minds end up a jumbled mess. The word sorry tends to come after the end of the jumble so I usually have enough time to figure out whether to say it or not.

    ... Although I have a friend who apologized at a wall before (for bumping into it). One time someone said to him, "why'd you say sorry" and he said apologized to the person for apologizing. Then the guy said there was no need to say sorry but my friend said sorry again. It was an automatic thing for him 😂

  • just curious-how do you handle it when you're actually to blame-like really hurt someone? I ask as I've found people who apologize for things that aren't their fault tend not to apologize when something IS their fault

  • I barely say sorry at all tbh, I have a habit of not saying it.
    Instead of sorry I usually say "My bad." or nothing at all. I don't know why lol
    People think Im rude. I don't blame them.

  • i do this all the time~ it's just how i was raised.

    something breaks? you apologize.
    bad grades at school? apologize.

    oftentimes, my parents made me apologize for things whether i was 'sorry' or not. now, my boyfriend is trying to break me of that habit. and he gets frustrated because he doesn't understand that's how i was brought up. one doesn't simply undo 30 years of conditioning.
