ICBW

What does ICBW stand for?

I could be wrong

Ever made a statement but you’re not 100% sure it’s right? You’d follow it up with ICBW (I could be wrong). This way, even if you’re off the mark, you’ve already expressed that possibility!

For instance, you could say, “ICBW, but I think ICBW stands for ‘I could be wrong.'” Surprisingly, you’d be correct. But hold on, there’s a twist! ICBW can also mean “It could be worse” depending on the scenario.

So if you’re left scratching your head trying to figure out which definition is the right one in a certain situation, remember, ICBW, but the worst that could happen is you learn two different uses for this handy term!

Example for using ‘ICBW’ in a conversation

Hey, did you hear that the new Avengers movie is coming out next week?

ICBW, but I think it’s actually coming out next month.

Oh really? I thought it was next week, but ICBW.

Yeah, I saw the trailer and it said the release date is in May. ICBW though.
