SORRY

People in America are way too friendly sometimes.
I think that an average American says at least 15 times "sorry" in one day.
For example, when you walk down the street and a person ALMOST touches you they already apologise before they even did something... It's a little over the top.
In Belgium we don't say sorry that often, does that mean we are rude?
A guy once told me that apologising is a sign of weakness.
Don't get me wrong I love kind people but too kind is too kind.

the belgians are not rude, even too courteous... I mean the french part, it's always "s'il vous plait, merci, bonne journée, ..." more than in France...

being Canadian, I think we're even worse than Americans. I know personally, I say sorry if I even brush past somebody on the street, I always hold doors open for people, etc. Just a polite thing to do, I guess. It's the way that I was raised! SORRY, haha.

Yeah it's definitely a culture thing. Saying sorry, holding doors, saying sorry again... I'm guilty of this at times. But I apologize only when I truly bump into somebody. Or say excuse me. Or they look at me like this >=/
