An online dictionary has the following definition for "too bad".
used to say that you are sorry about a situation
My questions are:
- Is "too bad" to a large extent synonymous with "I feel sorry"?
- Or does it sound mocking the situation of the listener? (so that it is generally inappropriate to say "Too bad he died so young".)
- Does the answer to the above change for "Too bad" and "That's too bad"?
