Hi!

Is it wrong to say "on a bad mood" instead of "in a bad mood"?

Or are there native speakers who actually use "on"?

Thank you!

    You need to provide context, MarX, so we can answer accurately.

    We say someone is "in a bad mood", not "on". I believe that this is what the other posters were thinking of, and it was my first thought, too.

    However, we do use "on" in other constructions: "He blamed it on his bad mood."

    Thank you for your replies, guys!

    I guess in this case no native speaker would say "She's on a bad mood."

    One of the "little" mistakes I often do as a non native speaker. :eek:
