Farsi (Persian) term or phrase: خیلی زود کم آوردی
Greetings,

Today on the new medical drama (زمین انسانها), this came up: "خیلی زود کم آوردی"

The subtitles said something like “You backed out/gave in very quickly!”

Someone had decided to do something worthwhile but easily gave in to pressure.

It certainly sounded like „خیلی زود کم آوردی“ (kheyli zud kam aavordi) – but is that possible, please?

All the best, and many thanks,

Simon

کم آوردن is very informal, the formal version can be تسلیم شدن
