Hello Tim
Acho sempre difícil essa expressão. Normalmente a traduzo como não fazer pouco de algo ou de alguém, estaria correto ?
Don´t take me for granted poderia ser traduzido por Não faça pouco de mim ?
Don´t = não
take me for granted = não dar valor
ficaria não não me dê valor, ou seja, não deixe de me dar valor, não faça pouco de mim…
Enrolado né ? Sobretudo quando a expressão é assim na negativa pois o take for granted já embute um conceito negativo !
