Hello Kati,

You said
Quote:
I am not faulty


What you should have said was
I am not at fault. - This means it is not my fault, I am not to blame.

I'm sure you aren't faulty! We use that to describe machines rather than people.

Hello Bev,

Incidentally which one is more common?

1. I am not at fault.
2. It's not my fault.

Thanks in advance.

Dear BZ,

Thanks for your correction. This is a new phrase to me. I became cleverer.
It is a good feeling.

Have a good day:
Kati
