You know some basic Croatian, enough to get you by, but there is nothing that will impress more than knowing a local phrase or slang that you can slip into a conversation…

Our ‘Word / Phrase of the Week will teach you a variety of words and phrases commonly used in Croatia, but not commonly found in language learning material.

Today’s phrase was sent in from a reader from Samobor where this old phrase is used.

The phrase oko riti v žep is used when a seemingly routine task is made complicated; to go the long way to the finish line, to complicate something that is fairly easy. definitely not living by the K.I.S.S (Keep.It.Simple.Stupid) principles.
