Spanish term or phrase: PICHE CABRON
it was used as an insult towards me. It's probably slang.
Joanna
English translation:Damned S.O.B.
Explanation:
It's PINCHE (not piche) cabrón. Cabrón is a male goat, but in Mexico, it's a very insulting term for a man--S.O.B, bastard, or worse. "Pinche" as far as I know, is a profanity only in Mexico (it has other meanings elsewhere), best translated as "damn" or "damned." These are "fightin words," I'd advise you not to repeat them!

Explanation:
Yes, those are very bad words, very offensive, surely the person that said that was very upset. I do not think that there is a direct translation.

you F----ing S.O.B.


Explanation:
Yes, this is a very naughty term - used a lot in Mexico. Now, it is sometimes used among friends that can "take it" but that seems not to be the case here as you said you were being insulted - and indeed you were. There is no real translation that would make sense to you ("bad seed male goat") but trust me, the above would probably be the equivalent in English. Like I said, probably the most frequently heard cussing in Mexico - used a lot. (BUT AS ALL CUSSWORDS IN MEXICO - ONLY AMONG MALES!)

depends


Explanation:
bastard (but you're female, aren't you? - usually for females it's cabrona = bitch)

miserly bastard if it refers to a money question

OR it could be the reverse

bloody/damned miser

It may have different meanings, depending on where it was said (I once had big problems with an expression I used in one part of Spain (an affectionate term for kids) and then transferred to another part - it became a terrible insult!)

And on how it was said - on a scale going from anger to affection.

f--ing a-hole


Explanation:
It could be the other things people have said, but if it was said in anger, with a particularly contentious tone; this would be the meaning. By the way, it\\\'s pinche cabrón.
