Dakle, želiš biti kao pravi Hrvat, jel’da? #005
So there ...., There you go ...... (with a compulsory shrug of the shoulders)
Hrvoje: Prema novinama, sljedeće godine, vlada će povećati poreze. [According to the papers, next year the government will increase taxes]
Zora (with a shrug of her shoulders): Eto! A što onda?
Eto! A regular and more-or-less confirming interjection meaning something like "There!", "There you go!", "Oh yeah!", or "Aha ....." (much less emotional than the "Aha!!" that accompanies an epiphany moment).
For example .........
Boris: Vidio sam predsjednika danas na Trgu.
Milan: Eto! Imaš sreću.
[Milan might also have added "Baš me briga!" (SAYINGS: 003 As if I care! Baš me briga!)]
A frequent "Eto!" during conversation is much more innocent than "Eto ti ga na!", discussed in another post (SAYINGS: 006 See, I told you so! Eto ti ga na!).
