English translation:don't ask me anymore / don't you ever ask me again
Explanation:
"Mos më vet (pyet) më kurrë."

However considering how horrible it has been written, it would be impossible for foreigners to find these words in any dictionary.

Thanks! Noted :) "Most of the time".

"By the hour" was a harmless joke, considering the amount of time you are using to decipher the handwriting and stuff.

Cheers!

Thanks - that makes sense, as does the explanation.

NB if that's how they pronounce "pyet" they must all be on crack ;)

Notes to answerer
Asker: You should see the whole document - 10 handwritten pages of this kind of stuff. I feel a sense of achievement just to have figured out as much as I have! Let's see an Albanian try to read that much of Scots or Chaucer....

Asker: Just noticed on your home page - "I live in Albania for the majority of time." This should be "I live in Albania most of the time." "Majority" can only be used of something numerable/particulate (e.g. majority of the population), not of something infinitely divisible like a period of time. Still more idiomatic would be "I spend most of my time in Albania."

Asker: "I hope you are charging them by the hour" - who does that for written translations? It's a slow typist's charter!

Asker: I know Alban - actually the handwriting was okay though, mostly in capitals. It's the pseudo-Albanian that really grates. I mean I wondered if it could have been "mos m'u mbet", don't stay with me. I know, not my choice of verb, but when it's all this distorted you resign yourself to thinking anything's possible....
