To have little belt

Val: «Tindre poca corretja»

Es diu que algú té poca corretja quan reacciona negativament a qualsevol broma o crítica que li fan; quan, si el punxen, s’irrita de seguida. Es diu en situacions en què es pensa que la persona s’ha ofés per no res. Igualment, es diu que algú té corretja quan té paciència i se sap dominar.

En esta frase feta la corretja simbolitza la paciència de la persona: si en té molta (la té llarga) li l’estrenyen però no li fa mal, perquè li ve ampla; si en té poca (la té curta), per poc que li l’estrenyen li farà mal i se sentirà molest, i és probable que reaccione amb un estufit.

Tindre poca corretja (literally, tindre [‘to have’] poca [‘little’] corretja [‘strap’ or ‘belt’]) means to be sensitive and irritable. You’ll be accused of ‘having little strap’ when people make fun of you without intention of offending, even so you get offended. Also when somebody criticises you and you take it too seriously or you take it personally. In this set phrase the strap or belt symbolises patience.
