To get in trouble for something said or done. "No pillarse los dedos" is the same as "curarse en salud" i.e. avoid trouble.
"Ese negocio no le intereda, se podría pillar los dedos"
"Ellos saben lo que hacen y procuran no pillarse los dedos /curarse en salud "
- Isabel Quesada
- I am a secondary teacher of English in Southern Spain. I studied MFL in Jaén and I got a DPSI certificate in Law in England. I started my teaching career in Newcastle back in 2000, where I lived for 3 years. Once I returned home, I taught in a public school and got ready to sit the "oposiciones" exam, which I passed!!! Currently, I am teaching in Jaén, which has become my definite residence in Spain since 2004.
