  • 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.
