Dear Teachers,

1. Is "shopping mall" the same meaning as "supermarket"?

2. Well. That's too far. I may have a ticket when I get back. What the heck!

- What does "what the heck" mean? and is it polite to say and common?

3. "I'm out of quarters" means "I don't have any quarters left", right?

4. You you what, buddy! Money always burns a hole in his pocket.

- What does "Money always burns a hole in his pocket" mean?

Thanks a bunch to Teachers,

Not quite. It's a commercial complex, with many (a supermarket has frequently just a big one) stores inside it, hallways, indoor plazas, fountains, the works.

2. Well. That's too far. I may have a ticket when I get back. What the heck!

- What does "what the heck" mean? and is it polite to say and common?

Not polite, but quite common.

StevenukdDear Teachers,

1. Is "shopping mall" the same meaning as "supermarket"? No! A supermarket is where you get groceries. A shopping mall has many stores of different types.

2. Well. That's too far. I may have a ticket when I get back. What the heck!

- What does "what the heck" mean? and is it polite to say and common? It's a very mild explactive. With an exclamation mark, it could mean "What is that?!" Or "What do you mean by that?!" Without the exclamation mark, it could mean "Oh nevermind, it'll be fine." "Oh, this restaurant looks expensive - maybe we shoudl go somewhere else?" "Nah, what the heck - we have the money!" Anytime you are using "heck" (or "darn" for that matter) you are using such mild language that it's hard to imagine offending anyone.

3. "I'm out of quarters" means "I don't have any quarters left", right? Yes.

4. You you what, buddy! Money always burns a hole in his pocket. Should this be "you KNOW what"?

- What does "Money always burns a hole in his pocket" mean? It means that if you have any cash, you spend it. You can't hold on to it - it finds its way out of your pocket and into a cash register.
