¡Déjate de Cosas!


El otro día escuché a Doña Herminia, nuestra Coordinadora de Aseo en la Oficina, hablar con su hijo por teléfono. “Ya déjate de cosas,” le decía. ¡Y mi antenita de español dominguero inmediatamente se puso a trabajar!

I heard Doña Herminia, our cleaning lady at work, on the phone with her son the other day. “Ya déjate de cosas,” she told him, which means something along the lines of “cut to the chase,” or “stop wasting time.” Literally, however, it’s a different translation, altogether!
