It's not a bad habit.
It depends on the circumstances and on what you're trying to achieve.

If you're trying to demonstrate to a newcomer that the art _works_, then using the "you attacked wrong" line is laughable.

If you are however trying to learn a specific movement to defend from a specific attack (which is just a subset of other movements and other attacks), and your uke starts giving you incorrect attacks which either confuse you if you are new, or force you to switch techniques (which in turn means youre not learning the specific attack/technique combo you were supposed to be learning), then yes indeed there is such a thing as "attacking wrong".
