Does it seem very likely that a young man would use the term "f***ing the dog" to his mother? Or would he have softened the phrase somewhat if that's what he liteally meant? Also, what was his tone of voice when conveying the information to his mother? Was he clearly pissed off and ranting, thereby indicating from context that it was a figure of speech meaning something else, or was he nervous and concerned to be talking about such a sensitive subject with his mother?
