Italian term or phrase: fare in culo
"e' lei che mi manda a fare in culo e io vivo di merda"

I know what the individual words mean but would welcome a translation of the whole phrase! My Italian friends don't use these sorts of expressions! I don't know why someone is paying me to translate these emails but ours not to reason why!
