I keep hearing this kind of sentence.
Tienes una cara que no puedes con ella. - Somebody said to me when I was tired.
and i just heard on tv...
Me tienen una envidia que no pueden con ella.
I get the gist of it, can anybody tell me concretely how to translate this. I guess its like "you have a thing that you can´t handle"


Thanks!

    Tienes una cara (tan grande) que no puedes con ella.
    Tienes una cara...: nerve, cheek

    Similarly:
    ¡qué ~ (más dura) tienes! you have some nerve!

    Applicable to other phrases with other subjects and variations:

    Me tienen una envidia que no pueden con ella.

    They're so envious of me...
