Your countries sayings...(66 posts)
I deleted this post because I realised how out of order it was
And do feel bad
I hope I didnt offend anyone
DAmn, i seem to have written this kind of thing too many times recently :(
here in my country we say : "dog that barks doesn't bite" referring to some people that only threaten you but never really do the stuff they say...
I have always wondered what the sentence "grass is always greener on the other side" refers to?
The "grass is always greener" refers to envy. Someone who thinks everyone has it better than they do or if they were only somewhere else, their life would be better. Like looking over your neighbors fence thinking they live a better life than you do.
PS: Americans say "all bark and no bite"
In the US we also say, "His bark is worse than his bite", referring to the person who will threaten much, but do little. So very similar to GaardCeteru's saying.
@GaardCeteru: did you say what country you are from in South America? Can you at least tell us the primary language -- Spanish, Portugese?
ScottW, I don't see the difference in bark and bite:) Did you ever find out how to remote access Vista? I was following that thread closely then it just disappeared. I'd like that answer myself. Hope you are having a great vacation. I sure am!:) Don't worry though, I'll be "out of your hair" come Monday.
"out of your hair" = I won't be bothering you or pestering you or annoying you.
Granny, if you want to learn the difference between bark and bite then talk to someone who has been bitten!
Old threads never die, they just fade away...into the list of all threads. From the forum front page, choose "Latest discussions" from "Views" on the right hand side. Of course that thread about remote access has faded away to page 6 (as of now). Here's a link:
@ ScottW: I'm not from South America, I'm from Central America, El Salvador (country itself to be more specific) and the primary language is Spanish =P
About the "pulling leg" thing here it has to do with scaring someone.. like when some friend has been doing a prank on you or a joke you dont like much, you can tell them: "when I die I'll come back in the night to pull your leg for all you've done to me ;) " of course said on a friendly way doesn't sound that creepy lol.. although some people say it like they mean it.. THAT sounds creepy lol!
GaardCeteru, thank you for sharing the "pulling leg" thing. I've never heard that definition before! When someone pulls a prank or joke on us, we say "when I die, I"ll come back to haunt you". It's always said in a friendly way! (not too many people believe in ghosts:)
JKay, good to hear from you. Hope you had a happy 4th! I've been using Spanish Language software for a year now and all I seem to remember is el carro:D. (Funny, I always seem to remember how to order beer!)
Well the 4th of July was just like any day here for me, worked 12 hours, was supposed to be home since the 1st!!! but they keep delaying me and whatnot, apperently helicopters and sand dont mix very well...
