essere stressato

While we gear up for 2020…let’s share some words from the archive!

Today’s Parola del Giorno is the expression essere stressato, which means to be stressed out.

As much as we all love the holidays, this time of year for many can be stressful, especially if you have to work long hours in retail or find yourself always on the go or dealing with shopping and crowds!

See our expression used below:

Un anno, sotto le feste di Natale, mia nonna mi disse, “Perché hai sempre un bicchiere di vino in mano?” Le risposi: “Non vedi come sono stressato? Le feste mi rompono: fammi godere una piccola pausa con questo buon vino!”

One year, during the Christmas holiday, my grandmother told me, “Why do you always have a glass of wine in your hand?” I told her: “Can’t you see I’m stressed out? The holidays bother me: let me enjoy a short break with this great wine!”
