Hello, “Oh, those..” what comes to your mind when you hear this phrase. Is it positive or negative associations.
My first association is “ Oh, those Russians”:) I’ve heard this phrase so many times. It usually has sarcastic or annoying meaning,
The second one is “ Oh,those girls” using at the same way as “ Russians”. When I act very spontaneously or illogicallly, I have a high chsnce to hear this phrase from someone.
Other situations are: if I take a lot off stuff going on holidays; the same-if I drive badly:)
What about you?
I'd say it could definitely be sarcastic but you could also say it if you didn't know what someone was talking about and you suddenly realised. For example:
'You know the ones! I'm looking for the chocolates with the caramel inside'...
'Ohhhhh those! Yes... I ate them'...
Aaaaaaa , it’s hilarious)))
thanks a lot for sharing, Sepideh. I didn’t see this discussion. Can you send me the link please.
