E n g l i s h !

Living in the Bay Area, you hear a lot of different dialects, accents and levels of the English language. I am not a native English speaker myself, so I won't proclaim to be proficient in it. There are however two expressions which annoy me tremendously. More and more native English speakers are starting to use them. Argh!
  1. Long time no see - when meeting somebody after a long while. Wikipedia expands: "Long time no see" is a common Chinglish term, meaning "I haven't seen you for a long time"
  2. My bad - when making a mistake. Mea culpa.
