I'm looking for words that mean 'Oh dear" or something like that. OOFTA, my mother says, is similar to OH dear in Norwegian. I also have Oy Vey (yiddish), Dagnabbit(Old man), Hijole (spanish) and AY ya-aye ya-aye (who knows). Someone said Acht du liebe , though translated to 8 you love, meant something like oy vey. What do you say? What did you parents say? what, my multinational friends, are some other ways of saying this?

Let's see... I have been known to say Crikies!(the result of too much crocodile hunter).
