Spanish term or phrase: "y pensar que..."
"Y pensar que pagué mucho dinero por este carro y es una porqueria.

Es una expresión muy común en español, la he visto traducida en google como "And thinking that...". No sé si esa traducción tal literal sea correcta; existe alguna forma más apropiada de decirlo?
