Hi this is Tutor Nick P and this is Adjective Phrase 7. The adjective phrase today is flat
broke or flat busted. So you could use either one to mean that you you have no
money at all. You're completely busted. Yeah. So let's
take a look at the note here. If someone is flat broke or flat busted, he or she
has no money or you could sometimes say they are penniless or someone is
penniless. What does this come from ? I guess sometimes flat can have the
meaning of completely. So if you say you're flat broke it means you're
completely broke or completely busted. Like maybe your savings somehow got
busted or your bank, the money in your bank is busted in this sense I
guess we mean it this way. So meaning that you have no money or no money at
all. All right so let's take a couple , a look at a couple of examples here.
Example number one. We can say I'm sorry I cannot go out with you guys. I'm flat
broke until the next payday. Yeah. This is a
really common one that you might hear. You know, especially if you have some
people that are living paycheck to paycheck, and they just spend all their
money and they just really have to wait until the next payday before they have
any spending money again. And in this sense they may say, yeah I'm just flat
broke, and there's nothing I can do. Okay, good. Let's look at number two.
MR. Smith got sued for 100,000 US dollars. It wiped out his savings. Yes. Now
he is flat busted or again you could also say flat broke in this situation. So
he has no money left anymore. Okay , anyway I hope you got it. I hope it's clear. I
hope it was informative. Thank you for your time. Bye-bye.
