Ben Affleck’s German lessons to his daughter

Teaching his daughter three-year-old Violet to swear in German made Ben Affleck’s face go red. The actor had taken his daughter to a Mexican restaurant where the tot decided to spill both their meals on her dad’s lap, prompting him to swear in German. Ben thought he’d avoided teaching her a bad word by cursing in a foreign language - only to watch Violet recite the phrase loudly to the horror of other diners.
Affleck tells, “All the food is coming, spilling towards me. And I go, ‘Shhhhh… and I turn it around and say ’sheisse’.
“Why I came up with that word, I don’t know, I have not even been to Germany, but I guess that’s a German swear word in my subconscious…
“I thought, ‘I’ve averted disaster.’ I look over at her and she says, ‘What’s sheisse? Why did you say sheisse?’
“I said, ‘It’s just a bad word, and we don’t say that.’ As soon as I told her it was a bad word, I was like, ‘You idiot.’
“So she just goes, sheisse, sheisse, sheisse, sheisse, over and over again. It turned into a total nightmare for me. My daughter’s swearing in German.” - Sampurn Media
