Spanish: Caer Lejos De Las Expectativas

Type: Expression

Meaning: to fall below expectations, to underperform

La compañía de mi suegro hasta la fecha ha caído lejos de las expectativas. Ojalá hubiera escuchado a mi esposo y en vez de invertir en ella, que hubiéramos invertido el dinero ahorrado a lo largo de veinte años en esa casita en la playa. (My father-in-law’s company has to date underperformed. I wish I had listened to my husband and, instead of investing in it, that we had invested the money we saved over twenty years in that little house at the beach.)
