Pan Comido

Irse la olla (colloquial) = to lose the plot (to lose your mind)

Una olla is a cooking pot, one you’d make stews with. Irse means ‘to leave (to exit a place)’, so here you’re leaving your dinner (the situation) to burn as you’ve decided to head off and do something else (in a figurative sense).

Se le fue la olla y dejó su trabajo y ahora viaja por Australia en caravana.
