Aiutami per favore Are there equivalent expressions of the following in Italian please? I beg to differ ( "I'm going to beat you!!" "I beg to differ!!" ) We'll see about that ( "I'm going to beat you!!" "Hmph, we'll see about that..." ) Tell me about it ( "This is so boring!!" "Ugh tell me about it!!" ) You're telling me ( "This is so boring!!" "You're telling me...") Just saying ( "You had better do your homework!!" "I always do it!!" "Okay.. just saying" ) Time flies when you're having fun Are you having a laugh/taking the p*ss? Great minds think alike

I have a few, not all: I beg to differ = mi permetto di dissentire (not used as much as the English expression though) We'll see about that = la vedremo ... Tell me about it = a chi lo dici You're telling me = a chi lo dici Just saying = (lo dicevo/era/ si diceva) tanto per dire Time flies when you're having fun = il tempo vola quando si sta bene Are you having a laugh/taking the p*ss? = me la rido
