No time for Sorry

Kfir is an Israeli living in Ireland. This is one part of his view on the Irish which I found quite funny:

What's the matter with these Irish people? They're so polite. It's not natural. It's insincere. Someone bumps into me on the street, brushes my elbow....."sorry." and someone else, steps near my foot---not even on my foot....again "sorry". What is all this "sorry " for? I'm not sorry if I touch a perfect stranger by accident in the road. Do I have time for this? And does he have time for my excuses? No. In Israel, I may push you down on your back and I'm still not sorry. Please....stop with your "sorries". We in Israel have better things to do.
