I would make the same mistake.
But sometimes I do notice quite a few of French words which are written the same in English, just pronounced differently.
We have a similar expression in Dutch, it's not to express that there's a lot to do, but that you have to work to get 'bread on the table'. So in other words make money to take care of your family.
Too bad about the match today, I also hated it that there wasn't a stream. I saw their first round and I just love them as a team.
