“You snooze you lose”

October 15th, 2007

95 Comments »

This phrase is an old and fun one.
Snoozing means sleeping, or napping. The idea of this phrase is that if you are snoozing, ie. not paying attention, then you lose.

Imagine that there is one slice of pizza left in the box. Then you take the last piece of pizza and your friend beside you says, “hey, I was planning on eating that”. You can make fun of him by saying, “you snooze, you lose”. It basically means, “you were too slow and not paying attention, so too bad, you lose, and I get to eat the pizza.”

    In Russia in this case we say ‘kto uspel, tot i sjel’. That means ‘if you are attentive, you get what you want earlier then other people do’. it Russian it sounds as funny as ‘You snooze you lose’ in English I guess.

    One thing I’d really like to reply to is that fat burning plan fast is possible by the right diet and exercise. People’s size not merely affects the look, but also the entire quality of life. Self-esteem, depressive disorder, health risks, and also physical ability are disturbed in putting on weight. It is possible to do everything right whilst still having a gain. If this happens, a problem may be the offender. While excessive food but not enough workout are usually at fault, common medical conditions and traditionally used prescriptions may greatly amplify size. Thx for your post here.
