A person who dawdles, who moves, works or acts slowly is called in Yiddish
אדם שבקושי זז, יש לו כל הזמן שבעולם נקרא ביידיש

זיך רירן ווי אַ בּער אין דער סמאָלע

zikh rirn vi a ber in der smo'le

to move like a bear in tar

לזוז כמו דוב בזפת

Yiddish is rich with expressions. In fact, sometimes the same phrase can be said in a number of different ways. I try to bring the unique ones, where it is is not obvious from the literal translation what the expression means.
