Default Just saw an accident!

And I´m laughing like crazy. I know I am awful!

Our neighbor´s driveway bends around the back of their house. Apparently our neighbor didn´t expect company, pulled into his driveway just as fast as ever and crashed into the parked car. Right after that all I heard was "Scheiße! Scheiße! Scheiße!" (sh**!)

We´ve been waiting for this to happen for about two years. We´ve even talked about it with our neighbor but he brushed our concerns aside. Now it´s happened.

I wonder how he´s going to explain that one to his insurance! Hopefully the damage isn´t that bad!

You're not terrible. The soul of grace is to enjoy "I told you so" without sayng it. So keep on laughing, just not in his presence!

My old German teacher, an amateur sharpshooter, used to emphasize the difference between schiessen and scheissen by having us recite: 'Schiessen gut, scheissen schlecht!' But he was a bit quirky. )

Schiessen = To shoot
Gut = good
Schlecht = Bad
(German scatological verb from which our word shyster is derived) = $^*+

He wanted to be sure we didn't confuse the two verbs. Sometimes, he'd say the verb in question and ask a student to just say in German if it was the good word or the bad word. [Stephan: Schiessen--gut oder schlecht?] If you said "gut" when he wanted to hear "schlecht," you'd get beaned with a piece of chalk. Otherwise, he'd just have us chant the phrase in the post above. )

I get it now! Pretty funny!

I assume the two verbs are pronounced differently? Otherwise one might get into a heap o' trouble!

Cheers,
