Idioms

Two men, moderately proficient in Yiddish, were lamenting the fact that there are Yiddish expressions that you cant translate well into English. Furthermore, there were some English words that cannot not be easily translated into Yiddish. One man said to the other, I have difficulty finding a Yiddish word that adequately conveys the concept of of the English word disappointed. His friend said, My mother speaks only Yiddish. Ill find out from her how to say disappointed in Yiddish.



The man goes to his mothers house and says Mama, you know that I always come over for Shabbos dinner every Friday night. How would you feel if, one Friday, I called and said I wouldnt be coming over for Shabbos? The mother replied, Oy! Ichll zein zayer disappointed!
