    Oops sorry, my bad.

    Why do people say 'my bad'? I always think 'my bad' what? Like there should be something that follows the saying.

    I think it qualifies as the most annoying saying for me. It makes me cringe when I hear or read it. Don't you think I have a moot point? People that say it really irritate me.

    Oh sorry if I offended anyone, my bad.

    It is just a new phrase meaning they have done something wrong, although as today's youth have limited speech skills, they have developed 'my bad' instead of saying anything longer.

    That was a suggestion as to why it was said.

    I'm just too lazy to use a long sentence when two words "my bad" seems to capture what i'm trying to say perfectly!

    Abbreviations annoy me, and phrases that go in and out of fashion. Like okey dokey, a while back at my school everyone asid it. Things that don't make sense annoy me to, so yes I agree my bad is irritating, but no doubt another phrase will come into fashon soon.
