There is a phrase that my family uses, but I'm not sure how to type it in Mandarin. I don't know if it is purely an exclamation or if it also means something. The closest way I can write it in English is "aye yai ya sin soco lah".
For example, if someone burned food, realized they had forgotten an appointment, or dropped a plate on the floor, they might say "Aye yai ya sin soco lah!"
My grandmother uses the phrase most often, and she speaks Shanghainese.
I know this seems a bit silly, but I would appreciate it if someone could tell me exactly what this phrase is and what characters are used to write it.
