- Desculpa qualquer coisa – Pardon anything
Saying “Desculpa qualquer coisa” is like saying: “Forgive me if I have said anything wrong, have done anything that may have bothered you, or if I was in any way inconvenient”.
You can hear this expression in many different situations, usually when people are saying goodbye. For example, when a Brazilian guest is leaving your home after a party or after spending a few days visiting you from out of town, she can say:
Example: “Obrigada* por tudo e desculpa qualquer coisa” = Thanks for everything and sorry if I have somehow been an inconvenience or done anything wrong.
* If a girl is saying this sentence she will say Obrigada. Although if it is a guy, he will say Obrigado.
- Não repara a bagunça – Don’t observe the mess or Desculpa a bagunça – Forgive me for the mess
