Hello, here we are again!

In my previuous article, I presented you some Serbian sayings, and if you want to see that, you can do it simply, by clicking here.

Now, I would love to present you some phrases that we are using here in Serbia, and that maybe can be funny to you. I hope that you will like this.

We can start!

Get a basket.

To get a basket means to be rejected. Usually, to be rejected from a person you like, but also, you can get a basket when you want to get a job and you do not get it, or when you want to go out with your friends, and they reject you.

Also, instead of get a basket, we also say 'to drink a pedal'. Nobody is sure what kind of pedal we are talking about here. Pedal from bike, from piano, from car, we do not know.

To find yourself in not harvested grapes.

This means to be in a situation where you do not know what you should do. Not harvested grapes is a situation what is not familiar to you. Situation where you have to do something, you have to make a choice, but you just do not know what you should do or choose.

You have never been in that situation before and you have to get yourself out of it.

Leads the water to his own watermill

This means to make things good for yourself. To make it good for you. To make situation be good for you.

Insted of leading water to your watermill, you can also say lead the wind to your windmill.

This means the same.

Not in the angle

Here in Serbia, we say this from a person, who is not mentally good. Also, instead of this we sometimes say 'not alone in his own head'. We are using those phrases to describe someone, who is not mentally good.

To harvest watermelons.

Harvest again, but this time, it is not about not harvested plants, it is about harvesting watermelons.

When someone is in a situation where he did everything he could do, but he did all that wrong, and now he is not in a good position, we say that he harvested watermelons.

Harvested watermelons is a trouble.

So, that was is for this article, if you like it, I can write more about Serbian phrases and also modern Serbian slang.
