what does the expression "¡qué muda!" mean?
My girlfriend's mom keeps telling me to say that to my girlfriend when she does something dumb/wrong but I dont understand so I dont want to say it without knowing what it means. Any help would be useful. Also she is from ecuador by the way. I don't know if the meaning she is talking about is a regional thing or something so I figured I'd throw that in there. Thanks for your time =]
Literal Translation From Google: ¡qué muda! = How Dumb!
Uh, I am guessing she wants you to call your girlfriend dumb. If you don't want to hurt your girlfriend's feelings, I wouldn't say it if I where you......
In a few Spanish speaking countries, like what geofc said, "Shut up"
In English English a good translation might be "shut your face". More politely, I'm not too sure as "shut up" is not very different. I hope this gives you the gist.
haha thank you guys. that makes a lot of since. my girlfriend and me and her mom are always being goofy so yea. thank you for your help!
