A British man expresses shock about a common act nearly every Aussie does after moving from England to Australia.

A discussion concerning the versatility of one specific famous swear term among Australians has been initiated by a British man.

A Londoner named Ryan Rose Evans who now resides in Australia made a video to his TikTok expressing how baffled and amused he is by how frequently Australians use the word “f***ed.”

Mr. Evans, a weightlifter who frequently blogs on life in Australia, particularly the dating scene, suggested in his highly shared piece that the word is used more frequently here than it is in his native country.

His article headlined “Aussies use this word for everything” had over 170,000 views.

One of the most frequent applications of the word “f***ed” is to denote being less than at your best due to exhaustion, excessive alcohol consumption, or even the usage of mind-altering medications.

It can also be used to refer to the empty contents of a friend’s wallet or pocketbook at the bar, ironically implying that the user is unlikely to overindulge and become “f***ed.”

Similar to that, it might imply that a person is in conflict, such as with a spouse, parents, or a state’s road and traffic authorities as a result of accumulating too many penalty points on their driver’s license.

It has recently been used to distinguish between a cold that would allow for working from home and a dose of Covid that indicates “I need a day off work’.

Like its root or base word “f***,” “f***ed” can also be used as punctuation, including as a strange kind of pause, to show surprise, shock, excitement, or laughter.

Surprisingly, one of the less common applications is to describe having engaged in sexual activity.

F*** is so widely used in Australia that it even violates the fundamental tenet of Aussie slang—that most words are shortened—and makes no sense.

The traditional instance is when the word “f***ing” is used in the middle of another word, as in “abso-f***ing-lutely.”

Mr. Evans was also right when he said that how we pronounce “f***ed” affects how the term is understood.

It appears that the way you express anything will determine whether or not someone understands what you mean.

Am I right? he questioned.

Users concurred in their comments on his video.

One woman remarked, “We’re a tonal people.”

One more person chimed in, “Are we serious or are we joking nobody will ever know!”

The number of expletives used by Australians astounds many British men, including Mr. Evans.

After watching an exchange between two friends, Ryan Frank, a British expat who recently arrived to Sydney, submitted a video to his TikTok account expressing his disbelief at the quantity of profanity that is used in Australia.

He said in the video, “There is a serious issue with Australians. Two Australians came me as I was in the store and yelled, “John, you f***ing idiot you. Hey, Matty, you p***.

I initially thought they were going to fight when I started watching, but I later discovered swearing is usual in Australia.

Ryan was shocked by the casual insults spoken amongst Australians and suggested that the incident wouldn’t go over well abroad.

He said, “If you were doing this in Africa or somewhere else, your head would be chopped off,” in the TikTok video.

What is wrong with these folks, he said, “Australians are actually a different breed.”

Even if you traveled to other countries, Australia would be the only one where swearing at people was considered normal.

Even children abuse their parents in this manner!

Additionally, he asserted that “everything can be insulted” in Australia.

People will call you a muffin, a dingo, a kangaroo, or a tool in Australia; where do you get these ideas from?

Commenters who have seen the video more than 80,000 times claim that the greetings are customary in Australia.

One person remarked, “We swear as a term of endearment.”

Another Australian remarked, “The harsher the swear word, the deeper the friendship.”

You shouldn’t be concerned while we’re being courteous, a woman retorted.

Another person remarked, “This year I just cursed at my teacher and she cursed back.”
