Mensagem: 

- Mas ele veio trabalhar de manhã!
- Nao, claro q não! Tanto não veio que a mesa dele continua a mesma bagunça...
Como dizer esse TANTO.... QUE.... em ingles?

 

 

 

  - No, of course not! He hasn´t arrived, considering that his desk is a mess...
  - No, you betcha! once his desk is still that mess! (or still that messy at this time of the morning)...
  - Of course not (he didn´t come to work) once his desk still messy (like this! for irony)
  - Certainly not, given that his desk is not exactly tidy (or is not neatly arranged)
  - Certainly not, given that his desk is cluttered and chaotic. (just like my desk!) 
  - No, the proof is that his desk is chaotic.

 

 

   NB: Not exactly a word-by-word translation, it is in the sense of what you explained.

   So, there will more ways to skin this (untidy) cat!
