We say, “Crap.” He says, “Take a dump.” When my husband said to him, “Take it back if it craps out,” the conversation quickly ended.
When my husband told me of this exchange – we both were flabbergasted. I realized, I might associate “crap” more with the gamble, “Craps.” So, perhaps I have a luxurious twist to this word that means poop. But, “take a dump,” we both agreed has connotations, to us, that seem beyond vulgar. Both phrases mean the same thing – but one is vulgar to one while the other isn’t. How interesting?
