Italian slang: "Avere le batterie scariche"

Italian slang: “Avere le batterie scariche”

Friday morning, and outside is raining.

You had to make a real effort to come out of the bed, get dressed and start heading to work. Even coffee seems not to be helpful. You definitely need some rest! Why? Because you have “le batterie scariche“: your battery has run out! That’s what Italians say when they feel tired, exhausted, either mentally or physically.
