Apparently Brits apologize around eight times a day -- which translates into or 2,920 times a year -- and to counter that the New York Bakery Co. have had an idea to turn "sorry" Brits into straight-talkers. They are enlisting the help of a "brashness expert" Nancy Baldwin. The Big Apple pro is dishing out brashness advice to the nation.
Tips and advice from nationwide brashness classes have been doing the rounds, such as "walk fast and with purpose -- the purpose is to get there before the other guy."
Brashness expert Nancy has put together a behind-the-scenes video of her trip to the UK capital as she imparts her wisdom on unsuspecting Londoners.
For those who didn't get the chance to meet the Brashness Queen face-to-face, an unapologetic helpline was set up in September. The line is now closed so it's until next time, New York Bakery Co.
