What does TTB stand for?

That's too bad

Those commiserating with you use TTB to mean "that's too bad." You're most likely to receive TTB after you've shared a sob story with a friend, parent, or co-worker.

For example, if you tell a friend that you have to work tonight, and thus can't make the concert you were both planning to attend, they may respond with "TTB, I guess I'll go alone." Or, if you tell your parents about how you missed out on a promotion at work, they may respond with "TTB, but I'm sure you'll get it soon!"


We had to put our dog down yesterday; Claire's taking it especially hard.
TTB, tell her we're thinking of her. Always sucks to lose a pet.

Sometimes, people use TTB sarcastically
