Cool phrases to sound like a native

As heard on Casa de Papel

Don't bust my balls

You hear this Spanish expression so often youТd think Spaniards keep touching each others balls. While we cannot confirm or deny, this is not what they mean when they say it. When you hear Denver telling Berlнn no me toques los huevos he is basically saying don't bust my balls, get off my back.

To cross the line

When a Spaniards, even with the best intentions, misses the point you can say Estбs meando fuera del tiesto. Literally you would be telling them they are peeing outside the pot but theyТll understand they've crossed the line.

Every now and then

You may think Spaniards are practicing their math with this 2 times 3 CADA DOS POR TRES expression but basically what they mean is that something is happening constantly, like every now and then - El profesor llama a Raquel cada dos por tres. The professor calls Raquel every now and then.

Police Car

You hear them repeatedly mention Zeta in connection with the police but what is it? Zeta is the name of the letter Z in Spanish and as in Spain police patrol cars have each its own number and this always begins with this letter (such as Z-1002, Z-221, etc), Zeta became the name for a police patrol car. You could always call it patrulla elsewhere but in Spain, youТd call it Zeta.

To take a bullet for someone

When you absolutely trust someone, to a point youТd take a bullet for them or stick your neck out for them then tъ pondrнas la mano en el fuego para ellos - you put your hand in the fire for them. Rнo pone la mano en el fuego por Tokyo.

Great!

Even though PUTA means whore and MADRE means mother, when you combine the two with the preposition DE to DE PUTA MADRE, you are actually not saying something as bad as you think but rather say something is great. Este nuevo coche estб de puta madre. This new car is great.

to work / job

When Spaniards speak informally they refer to their job as CURRO - Mi nuevo curro es muy aburrido. My new job is very boring. Salva estб sin curro. Salva doesn't have a job. We can also use the verb CURRAR - Estoy currando mucho estos dнas. I am working a lot these days. As a noun CURRANTA/E would mean hard worker - Daniel es un currante por eso lo van a ascender. Daniel is a hard worker, that is why he is being promoted.
