When I arrived in the USA (as a Norwegian), I was surprised to meet this conception that we Norwegians was saying "Uff da!" more or less all the time, as a comment to anything that is not perfect. Of course I knew the expression, but it is very rarely heard in Norway, at least in modern times. In the Midwest of the USA, everyone of Norwegian descent or who knew any Norwegian-American, claimed that their grandmother and great grandmother always said "Uff da!" to everything. As I understand it, it was more used by females than males.

Maybe it was more common in Norwegian 150 years ago, when Scandinavians settled the Midwest. Dialect researchers often go to the USA to study old dialects that have survived in a much purer form than in Norway. The survival of "Uff da!" may be a related phenomenon.

The meaning of "Uff da" is something like "That's terrible" or "Too bad". To me, it seems as if modern Midwest use is significantly "softer", more like "Ooops!", but that is not the Norwegian use; "Uff!" indicates something that surely is bad. In Norwegian, you will often see it written as "Huff da" eller "Huff a meg" or just "Huff".
