Nuove espressioni divertenti

edited September 2016 in Italian
It’s important that you learn these commonly-used expressions. Queste espressioni idiomatiche sono molto divertenti!

-Hai voluto la bicicletta? E adesso pedala!

Translation: You wanted the bike? Now you’ve got to ride it! 

This sarcastic Italian phrase is similar to the English expression “I told you so.” Use this phrase when your friend has a little too much vino and wakes up with a killer hangover.

Esempio: Non lamentarti del tuo nuovo lavoro! Hai voluto la bicicletta? Adesso pedala!

-Braccia rubate all’agricoltura

Translation: Arms stolen from agricultural work

This funny Italian phrase refers to someone who’s studying or doing some type of intellectual work, but doesn’t quite know what they’re doing. In other words, this person is better suited for farm work. Ouch!

ESEMPIO: Lui non è bravo come avvocato.... braccia rubate all'agricoltura!!!
