Hi

Is the red part natural English? I heard it on TV. It was something like this.

Yes, I know she can be very difficult at times. But what about you? Do you ever apply any tolerance?

Thanks,

Tom

Mr. TomDo you ever apply any tolerance?

I know that that expression exists in written texts, but I can't say that I've ever heard anybody say it. According to Google Ngrams, even in books "apply tolerance" has more or less exceeded its expiration date, having been most used in the period 1945-1965.
