My Bad. And More.

Let’s solve the mystery about this:

Scottie Button Pin

It’s a pin. About an inch across. Given to me by a friend years ago who sometimes stumbles upon wonderful Scottie items.

It’s handmade from vintage fabric.

And I love it!

Apparently, you do, too!

Uh…didn’t mean to leave you wondering about it. My bad.

(Actually, I don’t like the term “my bad” but it’s one that I’ll use occasionally. And I really don’t like “reach out” – what’s wrong with “contact me” or “give me a call” instead of saying, “Why don’t you reach out to him/her?” Don’t get me started. Is it an American thing? Or do any of you around the world also hear this nonsensical phrase?)

About The Scottie Chronicles

Winston welcomes you to The Scottie Chronicles - a blog that began in 2009 as a voice for Stuart, a more than memorable black, brindle and white Scottish Terrier who captured hearts around the world. Stuart passed suddenly in December 2015 from cardiac hemangiosarcoma, a nasty cancer that took him far too early. If you love Scotties, please follow along. Arroooo!

  1. I love it… there is a scottie and that’s what it needs to touch my heart :o)

  2. So far I have been able to grit my teeth each time I hear “reach out.” It’s surely hard on the teeth, though. I guess the offenders don’t realize how phony and silly they sound!

    You not bad and it was nice to see how many reached out in attempts to figure out what it was. At the end of the day, it’s a Scottie and it’s adorable, and that’s where the rubber meets the road.

    Please don’t get me started on some of the “popular terminology” these days – that could turn into a post that would take on a life of it’s own!!!

    One saying that’s a keeper: ArroOOOOO!!!!

    I like SWTS’s “Give me a ringy dingy”.

    I really do not care for all the phrases used mostly in the business community. “Reach out”,”on my/your plate”, “spot on”, “in my/your wheelhouse”, and a whole host of others. They sound so phony. Anyhoo….. love the pin. It is a classic!

    The Pin head is so cute! We love Scottie finds!
    We think that the way we say things gets started when we hear it on TV in a commercial or a newscast or talk show. If a celebrity says it, some people start imitating it–(something like the crazy Kardashian phenomenon, which to this day, I still don’t get what people see in them). If we hear something enough times it becomes part of our “Lingo”, I suppose. Even if we don’t like it and we cringe when we hear it, after awhile we inevitably catch ourselves betraying our distaste for the phrase or word or saying, and we hear it escape our lips when we are in a group of peers, and the only reason we can rationalize for having said it is because we want Society to know that we are “with it” and haven’t been hiding under a rock, and that we are quite capable, like EVERYONE else, of doing what is current at the moment.That’s all I can think of. About 3 months ago I started noticing that everyone on TV was answering every single question posed to them on News and Talk Shows with the first word of their answer being “SO”. Then I noticed it when I talked to people on the phone. In the very beginning, it was only a few people on TV but each day more and more people were answering that way, and now it is almost everyone being interviewed and people I speak with on the phone and face to face. Is it only me who thinks it’s happening and can’t understand why all of a sudden it started? Has anyone else noticed everyone answering this way recently? I know I’ve heard it before with a few people doing it randomly, off and on, here and there, through out the years, but NOT like this with EVERYONE doing it!
    Have a great week Stu’s Mum and everyone!

    • Yes!!!!!! Oh yes!!!! The “so” phenomenon really gets under my skin. People of all ages do it. Seems like everybody uses that word to answer questions. I really don’t get it. Thanks for bringing that one up.

    My Bad usually means dat I’m in trouble.
    I do love you scottie pin but den again…. I love all things scottie and plaid.

  10. theguster says:

    Well, it’s a pin! Didn’t consider that, but I bet when you wear it you get a lot of comments about it! It is darling.

    Count me in with the group who doesn’t like or say “my bad” and “reach out.” In fact, at my job, which I retired from in December, EVERYBODY said “reach out” and I couldn’t stand it. I felt like asking my co-workers, “Were you going to touch them when you reached out to the person?” But
    it’s funny you asked us about this today because I am sitting here smiling while thinking I haven’t had to listen to that nonsense phrase anymore and grit my teeth! Yes, retirement is wonderful!

    Thank you. I can stop wondering now. I mostly hear aussie english so I am used to the language being a little twisted and that! Crikey! 🐊

  12. Fab pin! We don’t care what the current slang is unless it fits…so no worries! Here’s one to consider….”Throw some shade on it”. Wad da ya’ll think that means ?

  13. gentlestitches says:

    Park your bottom end on it? 😊

  14. NOOOOOOOO….Throw some shade on it means to “cast aspersions”….who knew ? If someone tells you that you’re fly, that’s a compliment…but I think kids have just picked up on some slang from years ago…remember the movie SuperFly ?

Go ahead...Bark Out Loud! ArroOOOO!
