I also heard ''my bad'' for the first time on this board and I thought the person was making a genuine grammatical mistake as I assumed english was not his first language.
And I am hardly a ''square'' Oscar Guy but this phrase just doesn't sound right. It's like that jive talk rappers use in their songs.
Professor Higgins would shoot on sight anybody who uses this phrase.
This was the first place I'd encountered the expression as well, and the only place I've ever used it. I thought it was short for "sorry for my bad mistake", but the urban dictionary explanation makes it sound as if it is not only bad grammar, but insincere as well.
Accordingly, I shan't use it any more unless I mean to be sarcastic in my response.
