Somebody please shoot me


Today I actually used the phrase "My bad!" in an email to a colleague.



I need to get out of here.

The next thing you'll find yourself doing is saying "Not a problem" over and over again.

Madam Z said...

"My bad" is "not a problem!" I will shoot you only if you insert the word "like" before every other word.

Mnmom said...

You bad.
I prefer the erudite "mea culpa".

The Lady Who Doesn't Lunch: said...

I understand. I called my husband "Dude" the other night and wanted to shoot myself.

Dr. Monkey Von Monkerstein said...

I would prefer to gag you with a spoon.

I agree with mnmom, you're a lawyer focus on the latin. practice in front of the mirror if you need to.

Just stay away from like and basically if you want to keep your friends.

Um, Eebs and MadameZ, I hate to burst your bubble but I do in fact say "like" all the time. Mea culpa.

Elizabeth McQuern said...

"Well, excuuuuuuuuuuse me!"

(Is that comparable?)

I find that the term "I totally screwed the pooch on that one" goes over well in professional correspondence. Except for my stint at the National Humane Society, of course.

Bluez said...

bottom line, at the end of the day, it is what it is. At least you "reached out" to him by e-mail and didn't say "I fucked up". Oops I swore, my bad.

Nice.... is that 80s or 90s? I don't remember.

Madam Z said...

CP, thanks for the link to your June 9 post ("like, all the time"). I'm like all smiling and shit now.

Gifted Typist said...

Yup, you need help CP

I'm told by The Young and The Hip that it's totally naff to write lol in an email.
