qui va à la chasse perd sa place — you snooze you lose — Mot du Jour

qui va à la chasse perd sa place – who goes to the hunt looses their place. In everyday French, qui va à la chasse perd sa place is a saying that means that if you free your spot, you can no longer claim it’s yours, ‘you snooze you lose’.

  • « Non, tu ne peux pas prendre le fauteuil. Tu es parti dans la cuisine, donc ‘qui va à la chasse perd sa place’. »
    • “No, you can’t take the armchair. You went to the kitchen, so ‘you snooze you lose’.”
