    Cool more polite...

    Hi,

    Do you have something less vulgar than the common-used "I'm f...k"

    I hear it all the time around me. When something unexpected occurs, or when you lose a game, when you lose money, when your favorite team loses etc..

    It is "I am f*cked" = I'm in a mess - things have gone wrong for me.

    That's torn it! = very mild and inoffensive, but doesn't quite have the meaning that you are in trouble

    So you think that screw is less agressive than fuck? And milder? Shocking.

    Milder word, but no less agressive.

    Re: more polite...

    They are both vulgar and swearwords.
    Americans might say ' Aw shucks'.
    We might say 'damn' or 'blast', both very mild swearwords but acceptable.
    But there are many exclamations that would do - Oh no, I don't believe it, and others.
