"Get a move on!" "Hurry it up!"
Today’s #PdG is the verb sbrigarsi, which means to hurry up or to get a move on.
Sbrigati! Il supermercato chiude fra poco e non c’è niente a casa da mangiare!
Get a move on! The supermarket closes soon, and there’s nothing to eat at home!
This is a common verb to hear around Italy. When I live in Rome, there was a woman who lived three floors above who used to shout “Sbrigati!” daily to her son or daughter wasting time in the courtyard playing when she wanted them to run to the supermarket or pick something up at a nearby shop.
Nota Bene: Do not confuse sbrigarsi with sbrigare, which means to deal with or to get through something.
