    how'd you call this

    Hello guys, well, I was wondering how to say something, actually, I've listened on an american tv serie a man who said "Scroold you" or something like that.

    I mean, I think he meant "Don't bother me, go to the hell, you suck, you messed up everything".

    Actually I am not sure if the word "scroold" really exists, but I listened something like that. So, could you explain it to me? Give me more examples?

    Thanks in advance

    Question Re: how'd you call this

    Might he have said 'screw you'?

    Re: how'd you call this

    I am sure it was "Screw you" (Not a very nice term to tell someone to "bug off")

    Other examples:

    Don't screw up your education. (Don't mess us or sabotage the opportunity for getting an education)

    He was a real screw-up. (He was a jerk; did everything wrong)

    This was all screwed up (all wrong)
