Lost In Translation Moments

A few lost in translation moments for your enjoyment...

C: I'm going to get a jumper before we got out.
Me: A jumper? But its cold outside!
C: Exactly, that's why I'm going to get a jumper!
Me: Why do you want to get a dress when its cold? Wouldn't that make you Colder?
C: No, I'm going to get a...hoodie.
M: Oh.


A: And she's so g---ted.
Me: Are you saying gutted or guttered?
A: Gutted, like really upset.


A: My mum has 'Hey Soul Sister' as her ringtone so ever time it plays I think of her.
Me: The first time I heard it I was with a friend and she just looked at me and said 'cut a rug'?
K: Cut a Rug?
Me: Yeah, you know, "The way you can cut a rug, watching you the only drug I need, I'm so gangster, I'm so thug, your the only one I'm dreaming of."
A: Cut a Rug? What does that mean?
Me: It's an old 70s (?) saying that means to dance.
K: Oh, I thought it meant rug burns!
