I know I am a little old-fashioned about this, but even though "it sucks!" is used more and more frequently these days in colloquial American speech, I think it is still a fairly vulgar expression. Does "ca craint" have the same level of vulgarity as "ca suce" in French? I'm just curious.
I don't think there's any vulgarity attached to, 'ça craint' in French it is just slang .
I have heard it used by young people to mean a fashion faux-pas like a comment adressed to the wrong people wearing leggings ...
The other expression I have never heard personally but I am old-fashioned too!!
Many thanks, Cecile.
Best regards from one old-fashioned person to another, ;-)
