The Average Person Apologizes 2,920 Times a Year
Wow . . . I almost feel like we should all apologize for being so apologetic. According to a great new survey from Express.co.uk, people say “I’m sorry” way to much.
They found that the average person apologizes approximately 2,920 times every year. Let’s break that down:
- That’s eight “I’m sorry”s every single day.
- That’s 56 apologizes every week.
- And that’s somewhere around 250,000 apologies in a lifetime.
There’s more. The survey also found that about one in eight people apologize at least 20 times a day.
And, 43% of people admit that they regularly apologize when other people do something wrong to them like someone bumps you on the sidewalk and even though it clearly wasn’t your fault, you say “I’m sorry.”
