    Question What does this mean?

    I speak "un poco" spanish, and my fiancé called me this evening asking me to translate something that someone on his landscaping crew said to him. I couldn't understand him over the phone, and he wrote it down and gave it to my fiancé. I still can't figure it out. Could someone please tell me what this means?
    "Mi ratute está espendo." I've looked it up everywhere, and don't know if maybe he spelled something wrong, because it wouldn't translate "ratute" or "espendo", but that's how he wrote it.
    Thanks!

    It doesn't really make sense. At least these are words I've never heard in my life. Sorry I can't help you... Why don't you ask him again?

    Haven't got the faintest idea, but would love to find out what does it mean. If it means anything at all.

    Jesus!! It just sort of "came to me":

    Mira tú, te está esperando.

    (I pronounced it without looking at it!! )

    Look, she/he is waiting for you.
    Los hombres son superiores a las mujeres porque Alá les otorgó la primacia sobre ellas. Portanto, dió a los varones el doble de lo que dió a las mujeres. Los maridos que sufrieran desobediencia de sus mujeres pueden castigarlas: abandonarlas en sus lechos, e incluso golpearlas.
    No se legó al hombre mayor calamidad que la mujer."


    El Corán (libro sagrado de los musulmanes, recitado por Alá a Maomé en el siglo VI)

    Interesting! There could be no other explanation. That has to be it.

    Muchas gracias, mem y Kelly.

    De todas formas, lo he enseñado a mi joya ( ) y él ha dicho (después de quedarse estupefacto ) que también podría ser:

    Mira tú, está estupendo.

    Look, he /she is great (could mean good looking, depending on the context)
