Wicked
(adjective) synonym: cool, great, excellent.
A young persons word meaning 'great' or 'cool'. Wicked also has the formal (old-fashioned) meaning of 'bad' or 'evil'. These days it has a positive meaning. Remember, its very casual and mostly used by young people:
Look at that jacket. Its wicked! Im going to buy it.

I' d like to transfer some money, please.
I'd like to exchange some money. What's today's the exchange rate? Do you charge commission?
