About This Word


What does CBA mean?

CBA is an acronym that means can't be arsed, meaning, essentially, that a person can't be bothered to find the energy or willingness to do something.

It's used in England, Australia, and New Zealand more than it is in the US. Arse is a British slang version of ass.

For example

When you’re on the fourth day of unwashed hair and you are wondering if you can wing it another day 😂🙊 #Cba
