des conneries

des conneries is one of these words that sounds a lot more vulgar in English than it does in French. In fact, the literal translation is vulgar. However the use of the French word is so common in France that I like to translate them contextually instead of literally. In this case, des conneries would be nonsense or shenanigans/B.S. The softer synonym of des conneries is des bêtises, but it sounds uptight, and you'll be more likely to hear des conneries.

« Fais pas de conneries. C'est [ce sont] des conneries. »
"No nonsense. It's all B.S. "

That was Anne's native take on a French expression. Bonne journée française.
