He screwed me = He did something that caused problems for me.
That sucks = I don't like this at all!
While "screwed" is showing up more often, "sucks" is still considered a very mild "naughty phrase" and could cause offense.
Anonymous:You need to watch "South Park". It's plenty of "screw you", "it sucks" etc. I recommend this "cartoon"
