stara miłość nie rdzewieje

Proverb USED On Occasion BY Older Generations

(old love doesn't rust) • Once you fell in love with someone, you'll always be fond of them, even if you haven't seen each other in a long time; It's easy to reignite the love for your past partners and crushes.

"Nie przeszkadza ci, że twoja żona idzie na imprezę, gdzie będzie jej były?" "Niby dlaczego? To stare dzieje." "Wiesz, jak to mówią: stara miłość nie rdzewieje..."

"Doesn't it bother you that your wife goes to the party where her ex will be?" "Why would it bother me? It's ancient history." "You know what they say: old love doesn't rust..."

jedzie mi tu czołg?

Expression USED On Very Rare Occasion BY Some People

(do I have a tank running here?) • A phrase used to express disbelief or accuse someone of an obvious lie. In most cases, the expression is combined with a gesture of lowering the eyelid, showing the white of an eye (if not, it's implied).

"Przepraszam za spóźnienie, ale znowu musiałem pomóc sąsiadowi, który zatrzasnął się na balkonie." "Jasne. A jedzie mi tu czołg?"

"Sorry for late arrival, I had to help my neighbor who locked himself on the balcony again." "Right. Do I have a tank running here?"

z gówna bicza nie ukręcisz

Expression USED On Rare Occasion BY Some People

(you can't turn shit into a whip) • You can't make something out of nothing -or- you can't make miracles happen.

"Skończyłeś siekać cebulę?" "Nie ma opcji, wszystkie noże są tępe." "Trudno, z gówna bicza nie ukręcisz. Będzie bez cebuli."

"Have you finished dicing the onions?" "Not going to happen, all the knives are blunt." "Too bad, you can't turn shit into a whip. No onions then."
