Att ha tummen mitt handen — To be impractical

There is a nice idiomatic expression in Swedish used for impractical people. Att ha tummen mitt handen = Att vara opraktiskt, klumpig eller hjälplös.

A word-for-word translation would be “to have a thumb in the middle of the hand”

Kursledaren har detaljerade beskrivningar så att även den som har tummen mitt i handen klarar uppgiften.

The course leader has detailed descriptions so that even “the one with the thumb in the middle of the hand “can handle the task.
