    'my bad'

    Hi Teachers,

    I am not sure if this is an appropriate place for this question.
    But here goes -
    Is 'my bad' used in the UK and Australia, or is it limited to the US?
    Is it related to Ebonics?

    Thanks

    I don't know if it's used in Australia or the UK but this slang phrase became popular in the 90's in North America. I hear it used by teenagers but not as much any more.
