Brazilian Colloquialisms, Sayings, and Slang #80

Criar caso - To create [a] case

To be outright trying to start a problem where there isn’t one (ie an argument).

Interestingly, caso is also a colloquial term for “story” or “tale” - which means this term can also be translated as “to create a story.”

Criar can also mean “to raise” (as in “to raise a child”), so yet another alternative translation could be “to raise a story.”
