Pronunciation: [bo(n) day ba ra]
Meaning: Good riddance!
Notes: The French expression bon débarras is an exclamation of happiness / relief in response to someone’s departure or disappearance. Like its English equivalent « good riddance, » bon débarras is quite rude, so use it with caution. (At the very least, wait until the not-so-dearly-departed is out of earshot.)
Il est enfin parti – bon débarras !
He finally left – good riddance!
Variation: Quel débarras !
Related terms: Un débarras is any space (room, closet, cupboard) used for storing junk. The noun comes from the verb débarrasser – to clear (off, out), to rid (of).
