Word of the Day 03

Today’s French word of the day:

En avoir ras la casquette 

Meaning to be fed up.

Register: Colloquial 

Type: Phrase, Colloquialism 

More of a phrase than a word, but learning colloquialisms is so important for those who plan on becoming fluent, since these phrases don’t translate literally.

Other ways to say that you’re fed up:

J’en ai ras la casquette.

J’en ai marre.

J’en ai ras le bol.

J’en ai ras le cul. (Vulgaire)

J’en ai plein le cul. (Vulgaire)


Many thanks to my dear friend Philippe for helping with this post!
