“When yuh reach, yuh reach” (Is that one? My friends used to say that when they were ALWAYS running late).
Lol. Yup that is one as well. Meaning they don’t care about time. When ever they get there they get there. “Reach” in Trinidad means arrived. You might call someone and say “boy is rel traffic on de road yes, but we finally arrive”. In summary when yuh reach, yuh reach is CPT : coloured people time
