|Working at an office in Copenhagen
. You will seldom see the Danes
over something at work. Usually, they are calm
and handle frustrating situations very rationally
(although we do not really know what is going on inside them). Often you will hear someone saying “pyt
“. No, no, don’t get him wrong. He does not swear his boss in French.
On the contrary, it is a very handy expression to tell others (and yourself) that the unfortunate event that happened does not really matter and that things like that happen. Something like “oh well, nevermind” maybe. It is a way of handling stress and anxiety. Or better get away from them in the first place. This small word, chosen as the Danes’ favourite word in 2018, is becoming a lifestyle concept and is ready to take the world by storm.
But what is”pyt” (pronounced “pid” roughly ) all about? And why is it getting so popular?
