Comment-on dire ceci? Je ne suis pas sûr comment exprimer "the living shit out of me" alors tout que j'ai, c'est "Les ados m'effraient ..." Aidez-moi, SVP! J'ai lu j'en ai si peur que je chie dans mon froc mais je ne suis pas comment l'adapter pour moi ...

    "Les ados me foutent la pétoche". I think it's a more common expression and we are not far from the "shit" reference here.

    "Les ados me foutent la pétoche". I think it's a more common expression and we are not far from the "shit" reference here.
    I looked up "pétoche" in TLF + google images -- and I see no semantic connection to "shit".
    Please explain. Is there a slang meaning I've missed?

    les ados me foutent les boules de ma vie
    Does "boules" in this expression refer to "balls/testicles"?
    And is "de ma vie" an adverbial phrase that intensifies a statement?
