My dad uses the word - I'm guessing at spelling (vesh kun men ton; vush con men ton) which he believes means "it is what it is, or just accept it). Anyway, it's from his mother who passed 60 years ago, so we're racking our brains. Someone PLEASE help me figure this out while I can still share with my father. Thank you!!!
I'm not certain about the spelling either (vos kenen a mentsh tan
) but it means literally "what can you do?" (from the German saying was kann man da machen
in the broader meaning you wrote above "accept it/it's just what it is".
