swearing joder
You’ve probably heard this more than a few times since your arrival in Spain, or any Spanish speaking country for that matter! Joder’s closest English relative is the fan favourite “f*ck!” as well as “shit!” or “damn.” Though it’s not nearly as vulgar, it is just as versatile. If you’re stressed, surprised or disappointed you can use Joder to express almost any situation. You have to work late tonight, Joder… You lost your phone, Jooderrr! You get the bill at an expensive restaurant, JODer!
