lqrzv_p67hhp

In bahasa Indonesia, this phrase means “telat”, “terlambat”, “ketinggalan kereta”.
 
Example:
 
A: Excuse me. Is this jacket still on sale?
(Maaf, permisi. Apa jaket ini masih diobral?)
B: I’m sorry, you just missed the boat. The sale ended an hour ago.
(Aduh, maaf. Ibu telat. Obralannya udah berakhir sejam yang lalu.)
 
Another example:
 
A: Did you hear Julie left Sam with another man?
(Eh, udah dengar belum. Julie ninggalin Sam.
B: Yeah, we did. You missed the boat.
(Iya udah tau. Ketinggalan kereta, lo.)
