    Smile My bad?

    I saw a couple of times people use "My bad?" on the forum; besides that, I never came across the expression in any formal texts.
    First, what does that mean?
    Do you encourage people to use it in a formal writing?
    Thanks.

    "My bad" is strictly informal speech. It means "my mistake" or "I was in error."

    It's basically slang for, I'm bad/I'm wrong/I'm naughty....any one of these really, and no you wouldn't use it in formal writing.
