I am assaulted daily with "Oh my _ _ _!" I just tried to explain to some Korean teachers why it's so offensive."But I think you should tell Americans;not Koreans.Americans say that all the time in the movies." Koreans use this expresion as a stock English saying.It sounds very cool to them.Strangers have used it in my presence to "impress me". "I think maybe you are conservative Christian.You are too sensitive.You shouldn't let it bother you." Mind you that I wasn't boiling over or anything.It just gets rather overwhelming at times. My expression,which I have used here several times is :"Oh my imputed goodness." But even native English speakers wouldn't understand that.Of course that should lead to a good and edifying conversation;right? Any imput from BB'ers would be appreciated.
