a bit rushed

Hello everyone,

My question is: Is the following use of 'rushed' acceptable?

Things have been a bit rushed lately.

Thank you.

Your replies will be appreciated.

(An 'a' should have been there before the word 'sentence' in the title. It is a typographical error. I don't know how to correct it.)

    My first thought was to say precisely that. But a basic google brings up more examples of “things have” than “I’ve” been rushed. Still very few, but it clearly does get used. Frankly, I would have expected a lot more results.

    I think it’s fine, as I said in #4 (“things” being the generalisation).


    EDIT: This is in reply to what is now #8!

    What would be your personal opinion?
