When Did Bad Become a Noun?

November 6th, 2007 at 03:31 pm


This has absolutely nothing to do with finances, but was triggered by a Martha Stewart commercial I saw this morning. One of the newer slang phrases has been bothering me for quite a while and viewing this commercial this morning is to blame for this blog entry.

I can't stand to hear anyone use the phrase "my bad". Bad is not a noun, so it can't be yours! It just drives me crazy to hear people say that.

Sorry...just had to get that off of my chest. LOL!

    I personally agree. My kids know better than to say that to me cause I find it grating and it will lead to them hearing me rant about grammar for at least 5 minutes. (And they definitely do not want to hear that rant!)

    The grammar issue annoys me, so I just tell myself "my bad" is short for, "Oh that was MY BAD error, and I'm sorry." That way I can stomach it. Oops, I just used a noun as a verb, didn't I?
