Do Not Ever Do This : 03

My Bad
Don’t say this unless you’re 18 years old, maximum – and unless it’s 2008 all over again in your part of the world. Middle-aged middle managers saying things like “my bad” smacks embarrassingly of, well, middle-aged managers trying hard to sound hip, street, edgy, or god knows what. And failing. Oh, and while you’re excising “my bad” from your lexicon, you might also toss out “bro,” “dude,” and “see you around the ‘hood” (unless you actually live in a “’hood” – we’ll assume you don’t). You say you’re using these expressions ironically? Forget it – half the people you work with aren’t picking up the irony. They just think you sound silly.
