hello everyone ,
how would you say when a card (like a credit card f.e.) is not flat anymore because you put it away in your pocket and sat on it, in this way can we say "the card is buckled" ??
thank you for your inputs

    I would choose "bent" (or "folded" but "bent" is probably the better word) instead of "buckled" as not many people I know ever use the word buckled except when talking about belts.

    Hmm... You could say the card was bent or damaged.

    I damaged my credit card by carrying it in my pocket, and now it won't work at the ATM.

    "Damaged" works and it is probably what I would say, but I think that either "bent" or "folded" gives a more precise description of what happened which I think is what they were looking for.

    ok thank all of you , and as andrem said previously , damaged is too general and doesnt convey the idee of being "voilee"
    so "bent" sounds very good to me.
