¡Me lleva la chingada!

This is another classic you'll definitely want in your toolbox if you're serious about  swearing in Mexican spanish.

So what does this mean?  Well, that's a good question.  And as always, it depends on context.

Someone rear ends you on the way to work?

¡Me lleva la chingada!

At the cash register and realized you don't have your wallet?

¡Me lleva la chingada!

Your boss just told you have to work the weekend.

¡Me lleva la chingada!

As you can see, our expression doesn't mean just one thing, it's used  for a wide range of situations and carries the same meaning as numerous english expressions. 

Basically, you can use "me lleva la chingada" to express anger, surprise, when something bad happens to you, and probably a whole slew of other situations.

Well, that's it for today.  ¡Hasta la próxima!
