  • Hello. My name is Emma. And in today's video, we are going to do some shit talking. What's

  • that? We are going to shit talk with Emma today. Okay? So I'm going to teach you 10

  • expressions with the word: "shit". Before we start, what is "shit"? Does anyone know?

  • I've drawn a little picture in this corner. Shit is... I have a brown marker so it's-uh

  • don't know if you can see that-it's this colour. It's what you do in a toilet. We'll leave

  • that... I think that's enough to tell you. You shit in a toilet.

  • So with these expressions, they're all very common expressions. They're not expressions

  • you want to use with your boss, they're not expressions you want to use with your grandma

  • or your grandpa. They're expressions you will use with your friends, they're expressions

  • you will listen to in movies, on TV. So my main point: don't use these at work, don't

  • use these with your family. Okay?

  • So let's get started. Oh, sorry, one other thing: pronunciation. Students often mispronounce

  • the word: "shit". They say: "sheet", "sheet". You see? They smile when they say it. Shit

  • is not something you smile about. So when you say the word: "shit", don't smile. Okay?

  • Your mouth goes down, "shit". So repeat one time, make sure you're not in a room filled

  • with people. Okay, let's say this word together. One, two, three, "shit". Okay. Good. So now

  • let's look at some expressions.

  • My first expression today is one of my favorites. "Shitty", "shitty". Okay? So you can say that

  • once: "shitty". When we say it, the "ty" almost becomes like a "dy" sound, and "shit" is longer

  • and louder. "Shitty", "shitty". What does it mean? When something is "shitty", it's

  • bad, it's a synonym of bad. So, for example: "Today I had a shitty day." Meaning: today

  • I had a bad day. Okay? You can ask someone: -"How was work today?" -"Oh, work was shitty.

  • I had a really shitty experience at work." Okay? -"How did your test go?" -"Uhh, it went

  • shitty. It was a shitty test. I didn't do well." Okay? So it's an adjective.

  • Our second expression: "shit-faced". Now, important how you pronounce the "ed", it's

  • like a "t" in this case. Okay? So we don't say: "shit-faced", no, no, no. "Shit-faced",

  • okay, "shit-faced". What does it mean to be shit-faced? "Shit-faced" means very, very,

  • drunk. Okay? If you ever go to the bar, you drink one beer, you drink two beer, you drink

  • eight beers, you will probably get shit-faced. So it means very drunk. Here's our example

  • sentence: "He had eight beers. He's shit-faced." Okay? We don't say: "He has a shit face."

  • That would sound very bad if you said that to someone. We don't say: "He has a shit-faced."

  • He... The "s" stands for: "He is shit-faced." Okay?

  • Let's look at our third expression: "shitbox". A "shitbox" is a car. Okay? It's a car...

  • Can you guess? Do you think it's a good car or a bad car? If you said: "Bad car", you

  • are correct. A "shitbox" is a very bad car; it's very slow, very ugly, maybe the wheel

  • is falling off. Okay? It looks like it is going to fall apart at any moment. It's usually

  • a very cheap car. So maybe you're on the street and you see your friend and he's driving a

  • shitbox. You can say to your friend: "Look at the car. What a shitbox!" All right.

  • Similarly, so "shitbox" is car, a "shithole" is a way to describe a place someone lives.

  • Okay? So if your friend lives in an apartment and the apartment is very ugly, and small,

  • and dirty, and there's not a lot of light, maybe there's no windows, it's a really sad

  • apartment - you can call it a "shithole". So I have a friend, "Her apartment is a shithole.

  • It's dirty, and"-eww-"there are cockroaches." Cockroaches, do you know what a cockroach

  • is? It's one of those insects that lives in people's apartments, they're really disgusting.

  • So it's a type of bug. If you have cockroaches in your apartment, you might... May be living

  • in a shithole.

  • Our next word: "shit-disturber". Just like: "teacher", "worker", "officer", "manager",

  • these are all "er" words. Can you guess what "shit-disturber" is? It's a person. If you

  • know a shit-disturber, a "shit-disturber" is someone who likes to make drama, likes

  • to cause drama. They like it when a situation is not relaxed, but there are many problems.

  • So, for example: maybe... This should be "my", okay. Maybe I have a sister and I have a mother,

  • and I really like a boy, but maybe he's a bad boy and my family won't like him. I tell

  • my sister: "Don't tell mom, but I have a new boyfriend. It's someone mom won't like." If

  • my sister is a shit-disturber, she wants to see drama, she wants to see problems, so she

  • will tell my mom: "Emma is going out with a bad boy.", "My sister told my mom about

  • my boyfriend. She's a shit-disturber." Meaning: my sister is a shit-disturber. So it's a person

  • who likes to create problems for people. Okay? They're a shit-disturber. Let's look at five

  • more expressions.

  • Okay, sixth on our list is: "Don't give a shit." Or: "Don't give 2 shits." So you have

  • a choice: "Don't give a shit", meaning one shit, or: "Don't give 2 shits." Both, you

  • will hear both in movies, in conversation. So how do you use it? "Well, I don't give

  • a shit." And what does this mean? It means: "I don't care." Okay? "I don't give a shit.

  • I don't care." So maybe... Maybe you were supposed to... Well, this... A teacher would

  • never say this. Okay? But just an example. Maybe you didn't do your homework and you

  • go to your teacher and you say: "I didn't have time, my dog ate my homework, I'm really

  • stressed with school, I have all these problems." What your teacher probably wants to say, but

  • won't, is: "I don't give a shit." Meaning: I don't care what your problems are. I don't

  • think teachers actually think this, but it's always possible.

  • Number two: "Scared the shit out of me!" Okay? If somebody scares the shit out of you it

  • means... Or something scares the shit out of you, it means you are very, very scared.

  • Okay? Just very scared. So, for example: what scares me? Ghosts, ghosts scare me. If I hear

  • a weird noise at night, maybe I might think it's a ghost, maybe I might jump to that conclusion.

  • And so if I hear a strange sound, I might say: "Oh, that scared the shit outta me!"

  • I might say: "That scared the shit out of me. It scared the shit outta me!" Maybe you've

  • seen a movie, maybe Paranormal Activity, that movie was very scary. It scared the shit outta

  • me! Okay?

  • You might notice, here I wrote: "out of me", and here I wrote: "outta me". What's the difference?

  • Often times, when we say: "out of me", we don't say it like this. It's too formal, too

  • slow. We usually link our words, and instead in conversation, we will say: "outta me".

  • Okay? So can you say that? "Outta me". "It scared the shit outta me!" Okay, good.

  • "Full of shit". Okay? I like this expression. What does it mean to be full of shit? Well,

  • if you are full of shit, it means you are lying. If someone is full of shit, they are

  • not telling the truth; they're lying. If you told me the sky was green or the sky was...

  • What colour could the sky be? If the sky was... Yeah, green. I would say: "You're full of

  • shit. It's blue. I know it's blue." Okay? So it means: you're lying. "He's so full of

  • shit." He's lying.

  • "Shitting me", "shitting me", what does this mean? Well, we often ask the question: "Are

  • you shitting me?" Meaning: are you lying to me? So in this one, it also means lying. You

  • could also say: "Don't shit me.", "Are you shitting me?" And again: are you lying? Are

  • you telling the truth? We use it often times when someone tells us something that is very

  • surprising. If a student came running up to me and said: "You know Brad Pitt, the actor?

  • He's outside the school right now and he wants to talk to you." I would say to my students:

  • "Are you shitting me?" Meaning: are you lying? Is that true? So we use it that way.

  • To "talk shit". When you talk shit, it means you don't tell the truth. Okay? And usually

  • it means you're talking badly about someone. So you're talking badly about someone you

  • know, maybe a teacher, a friend. So it's not a good thing. To "talk shit" means to talk

  • about people in a bad way. Someone might say: "Stop talking shit! Stop talking shit about

  • me." Meaning: don't say not nice things about me. Okay. So, stop talking shit.

  • So, I decided to add a bonus. There are so many shit expressions, I decided to add one

  • more that I really like, and that is: "bullshit". Do you know what a bull is? A bull like this,

  • you know, it's like a boy cow, that's a bull. So a bull is an animal. "Bullshit" means it's

  • not true. A lot of these mean it's not true. We can also say: "B.S.", "Bullshit" and "B.S."

  • are the same thing. Sometimes people say: "B.S." to be a little bit more polite, although

  • it's still not polite, it's just a little bit better. So if somebody tells you something

  • that you don't believe: "That's total bullshit!" Okay? "That's not true, that's bullshit. That's

  • B.S." Okay?

  • So, I hope you have liked this video and you have liked learning these expressions. I hope

  • you didn't find any of the expressions too shitty; I hope you enjoyed them all. So if

  • you want to practice these expressions, I would invite you to visit our website at:

  • www.engvid.com. There you can find our quiz to... Where you can see if you've understood

  • all of these expressions and to practice them more. Remember: don't practice these with

  • your teacher, don't practice these with your boss, don't practice these at work. They're

  • for your friends. Okay? Until next time, take care.
