comment Is there an English idiom for trying to do two things at the same time and failing at both of them due to splitting your effort?
I love this but it's just a hair off the meaning I was going for.

comment English idiom for the Italian “Buon lavoro”
Along with "buon appetito" this is a very useful phrase. There is another sense of "buon appetito" that you use to politely acknowledge someone eating, like when you bump into a friend at a restaurant. The English translations would be "as you were" (military) or "carry on" (authoritative) or, more politely, "please, don't let us interrupt [your meal]." Does "buon lavoro" allow the same usage?
