Dutch phrase of the day!

“De hond in de pot vinden”

“To find the dog in the pot”. This phrase means that you are too late for dinner (or just food in general).  This phrase finds it origin from the idea of allowing dogs to lick plates clean after a meal. It means that you arrived soooo late that the dog is already ‘cleaning’ the plates. It’s also sometimes used in a broader context. In that way it means: to be getting nothing because everything has gone to the others.
