    Hi guys, I'm watching this movie, THE YELLOW HANDKERCHIEF, http://www.mymovies.it/film/2008/theyellowhandkerchief/

    and there's this sentence (the main charachter is talking about her father and his girlfriend):

    "l bet he's picking her up to do the runs with him."

    I don't really get it... :confused:

    thank you all!! ;)

    Penso che significhi che lui è andata a prendere la tipa per andare a farsi una cagata :warn: insieme...o forse per fargliela fare a lei ! :)

    Hope this helps

    Grazie ma mi sa di no... se non altro perchè nella battuta successiva la ragazza dice che certe volte il padre ci portava pure lei... e il contesto non sembra puntare in quella direzione...

    grazie lo stesso :)

    What is the father's job, or what does he do? "Do the runs" seems to refer to a kind of courier service, legal or otherwise ('drugs runs', 'school runs', for example), or having to drive back and forth for some purpose.

    That's what I thought too but I have no clue as for his job... not so far, at least, I'm not through the whole movie yet, actually...

    thanks for confirming that this meaning exists as well :D
