  • NEITHER ONE, I RARELY GET OFFENDED BY WORDS SPECIALLY FROM A TEEN.

  • I don't get offend by either work. I do how ever get offended when they swear so I'd take crappy and it sucks.

  • I'd say "that sucks" because I know that really offends some people. I remember saying it at work one day and one of my coworkers was so shocked and all "I didn't think you'd use language like that" which surprised me. Honestly though my kid has said both things on occasion and I haven't bothered making a fuss. When he says a nastier word ('bloody hell; a couple of times and the F word once) I tell him that's not an OK word to use and remind him that he'd get in big trouble if he used that word at preschool.

  • Neither is offensive to me. I say both and so do my kids (and they are 9 and under).

  • I would have serious issues if my 9 year-old came to me and told me something sucks or is crappy. Those words just aren't a part of our family vocabulary.

  • Neither offends me. It is the outright swearing that irritates me. Nothing much offends me though., especially out of teens that are learning to assert themseleves.
