INTRODUCTION
Eric: Must-Know Greek Social Media Phrases Season 1. Lesson 10 - Feeling Disappointed.
Eric: Hi everyone, I'm Eric.
Chrissi: And I'm Chrissi.
Eric: In this lesson, you'll learn how to post and leave comments in Greek about being disappointed. Δήμητρα (Dímitra) feels disappointed about today's weather, posts an image of it, and leaves this comment:
Chrissi: Γκαντεμιά! Μας τα χάλασε σήμερα ο καιρός. (Gademiá! Mas ta hálase símera o kerós.)
Eric: Meaning - "Shoot! The weather messed up everything today." Listen to a reading of the post and the comments that follow.

POST
Eric: Listen again to Δήμητρα (Dímitra)'s post.
Chrissi: Γκαντεμιά! Μας τα χάλασε σήμερα ο καιρός. (Gademiá! Mas ta hálase símera o kerós.)
Eric: "Shoot! The weather messed up everything today."
Chrissi: (SLOW) Γκαντεμιά! Μας τα χάλασε σήμερα ο καιρός. (Gademiá! Mas ta hálase símera o kerós.) (Regular) Γκαντεμιά! Μας τα χάλασε σήμερα ο καιρός. (Gademiá! Mas ta hálase símera o kerós.)
Eric: Let's break this down. First is an expression meaning "shoot."
Chrissi: γκαντεμιά (gademiá)
Eric: This word can be used as a noun, which is...
Chrissi:η γκαντεμιά
Eric: but also as an interjection, like in this lesson. In that case, you can understand this as an expression similar to "Shoot!" in English. Listen again- "shoot" is...
Chrissi: (SLOW) γκαντεμιά (gademiá) (REGULAR) γκαντεμιά (gademiá)
Eric: Then comes the phrase - "the weather messed up everything today."
Chrissi: μας τα χάλασε σήμερα ο καιρός (mas ta hálase símera o kerós)
Eric: If we translate this word by word, it would mean something like "the weather today ruined them for us." "Them" being ‘our plans’. You can replace…
Chrissi: ο καιρός
Eric: ...with any other word or name of a person who ruins your plans. Listen again- "the weather messed up everything today" is...
Chrissi: (SLOW) μας τα χάλασε σήμερα ο καιρός (mas ta hálase símera o kerós) (REGULAR) μας τα χάλασε σήμερα ο καιρός (mas ta hálase símera o kerós)
Eric: All together, "Shoot! The weather messed up everything today."
Chrissi: Γκαντεμιά! Μας τα χάλασε σήμερα ο καιρός. (Gademiá! Mas ta hálase símera o kerós.)
