Post and tell what is the meaning of that.
 
If you want anyone to greet you it's customary to break knee caps for anyone to notice

What does it mean?

Break an arm is quite similar?

Thnkz btw.

I'd like to help you with this, but I don't know the answer. I have never heard that expression used in that way before.

We're supposed to talk about many expressions or just this one in particular?

About many expressions. But this one (the first) cannot be explained. :lol:

Well, there is by the skin of my teeth. You use it for something that almost [not] happened.

I know I'd never want somebody to break their knee cap. Awful. And as far as I know, it's not an usual expression.

And I guess you should change the title. "Expression's help" sounds like that Stephen Hawking talking machine, and it seems they call those weird prhases "idioms". I'd try "help with idioms meanings".

I remember once the teacher asked us about our weekend, and a girl said "I spent saturday fooling around with my friends" and our teacher went like "I wish I had friends like you people".
:hysteria:

It seems she meant they HANGED AROUND (means ficar de bobeira, and it seems that "to hang about" means the same thing), but in the end she got us all thinking about group sex. And she was  hot, to make things worse. English classes are very amusing.

Now, I've received a joke.

Citar
Wee Hughie adored and loved his girlfriend, Lorraine, to whom he was engaged to be married. Wedding plans were well underway and he was looking forward to spending the rest of his lfe with Lorraine.
However, a beutiful young lady, called Clearly, came to work in his glen and they found that they got on together very well and as time went by, Wee Hughie realised that he was in love with Clearly and that the Love was reciprocated.
Being a gentleman he decided that as he had promised to marry Lorraine he would do so and steadily removed himself from his other relationship.
One day, he and Lorraine were walking along the banks of the River Tay. As they walked, Lorraine slipped and fell into the river and was swept away and drowned.
He stood on the bank for a few minutes feeling very sad before walking away singing happily.
And this is what he sang.
"I can see clearly now Lorraine has gone"

I quit.

Ha Ha!

The punch line would be funnier if you spell "Clearly" with a capital C.
