Danish term or phrase:røge ud
Not sure what is meant here:
Complaint about having to use a particular service because instructions from the original supplier are not adequate.
Jeg er tvunget til at bruge dem, men det er helt sikkert at var jeg ikke det, var de røget ud med det samme!
Explanation: I would have thrown them out (or: dumped them). You are providing very little context, but the text seems quite informal, so 'dumped them' may be better. I don't know what it is that the writer wants to throw out, but hope you can use this. 'røget ud' is very common informal Danish...
I'm forced to use them, but if I weren't, I would definitely have thrown them out.
