Appreciation Over Apologies

Instead of attempting to stop yourself from saying something altogether, the user suggests replacing that oft-repeated “I’m sorry” with two different words: Thank you. This flips the script and changes something that could be perceived as a negative mistake into a moment for you to express your gratitude and appreciation.

Sounds great in theory, right? But, how practical could it actually be? Would this be yet another suggested phrase that gets thrown out of the window the second I feel tempted to apologize?
