Albanian phrases!

Larg syve, larg zemrës – Out of sight, out of mind

punë më spec – Work with pepper; this is used to express something that might (for various reasons) be difficult to say, perhaps because it is an ugly truth, embarrassing, uncomfortable, or dangerous to explain. Here are some examples:

  •  Your friend asks youm “Hey Bob, do you like my new haircut?” You think it looks dumb, but you don’t want to hurt his feelings because he’s sensitive about his hair…punë më spec!
  • You find out that your friend shoplifted some candy bars at the market, should you snitch on her to the security?…punë më spec.
