So this may sound a little harsh, but lately I’ve been getting really annoyed every time I hear the word “sorry” at the wrong time. When I say the wrong time, I mean when something wasn’t even your fault.
For example, at my job, I’ll say to my new co-worker, “Hey, do you think you could get me this or that from the back?” Or sometimes I’ll just let her know little tips, like how to toast the bread on different settings and what not. It just starts to get to me when, immediately following EVERY single thing I suggest or ask for her to help me with, she has to say, “I’m so sorry.” Yeah I sound a little harsh, the poor girl is just apologizing, but then I think WHY? “YOU DIDN’T DO ANYTHING WRONG!”
Then, I’ll find myself saying, “It’s okay,” fifty times in an hour.Especially when we’re busy and I’m already stressed out because we have a bunch of people standing in line requesting their breakfast, I get really pissed when this girl says sorry a hundred times.Not to mention, she does it to the customers too and they’re standing there with a confused look on their faces like, “You didn’t even do anything wrong.”
Then there was today. Today, I was entering the bathroom when a girl was leaving and she goes, “Excuse me, sorry.” Did you really just apologize for leaving the bathroom? People, if you didn’t do anything wrong, then why admit to doing so in the form of an apology? It just gets annoying when you constantly have to say, “Oh no, you’re fine,” with a fake smile over and over again for no reason at all!
