A recent survey has revealed that the average Brit uses the word 'sorry' close to eight times in a day and almost 3,000 times a year. Some of them were apologetic more than 20 times in a day.
'Sorry' was found to be used in the workplace the most and then while shopping or when one is back home with the family, the survey revealed.
Many a time 'sorry' was used when there was no need to be apologetic- for instance when somebody stepped on their toes or bumped into them.
It appears that 'sorry' is used when there is nothing else to say!
