Is that Polish pirate speak or a more correct rendering of this saying's local pronunciation?
Is it okay to say it in front of the children?

piździ jak w kieleckim na dworcu (na bahnhofie is from German and not so commonly used)

Most children would use it with no hesitation at all.

The question is not "do children use this expression?" but "is it actually acceptable in polite society where children may be present?"

My girlfriend tells me off for saying things that I think aren't too bad, then I hear her say things that to me, sound even worse in front of the kids. I've never been able to find out exactly at what level piździ is.

(na bahnhofie is from German and not so commonly used)

But in Silesian?

The question is not "do children use this expression?" but "is it actually acceptable in polite society where children may be present?"

And the answer is: children are using it without hesitation. It's very colloquial and presently does not implicate anything vulgar or indecent. The "polite" society does not use colloquial language at all or does it very rarely. It really depends on how touchy are the people you are talking to and to what extent they pose. Children are generally at ease with the informal language and their connotations are fascinating and flexible. Some adults tend to think that kids should not be addressed in informal way ‘cause it would derogate the status of the elders and children are supposed to know only the language which allows them to address others in respectful manner. If you are amongst old-fashioned people who identify respect / manners with elaborate, literary style – I would not use “piździ”. Otherwise you are fine, regardless of the fact if there are children present or not.

But in Silesian?

In Silesian, maybe.
That still means that is not as common as the first version which is used more or less everywhere in Poland.

I don't think it is acceptable to use it in front of children, word "piździ" or often used "pizga" comes from the word "pizda" which is actually a pussy or a pranny..

word "piździ" or often used "pizga" comes from the word "pizda" which is actually a pussy

Actually it is much older than "pizda", it simply changed its meaning with time. "Piździć" (and "pizgać" as well) used to mean "to grumble". Nothing to do with pussy, but I'm sure Mr. Freud would write a nice elaborate piece on this type of connotations :D

;) sorry for my parochial approach earlier, but still, I think that most people will associate "pizdzi" with it's dirty cousin...

Actually it is much older than "pizda"

... which is itself an ancient word. Just because it is deemed to be rude doesn't mean it doesn't have roots all the way back to the hypothesised proto-Indo-European. Well, maybe.

Hello,
I found this forum in trying to find a Polish word, that I thought was slang. If someone can help? The word meant "unpleasant surprise" with the meaning more toward the way find out you just crapped in your pants is a surprise. I thought it began with a Z. Thank you for all your help!

LOL! I heard this phrase many times in my life. The way that I remember it was (zesralem sie w gatki) This may not be the way true poles say it but ,but this is how my immigrant father said it.

( I pooped in my drawers)

My grandmother said it meant "devil sh*t". It loses something in translation but it was suppose to be a major swear word.

Looking for help - "Holetta"

My polish mother in law always used to say "Oh, Holetta!" but I never knew what it meant. When she said it, it would be in the same context as I might say "Oh Christ!" or "Oh for cryin' out loud!".

Can anybody tell me what "Holetta" means?
