轻松日记商务职场篇 第54期:为朋友两肋插刀 在所不惜

时间:2017-02-23   栏目:商务英语对话  点击:
I should put my ass on the line for you.
我理应为你两肋插刀的。
put my ass on the line直译过来就是:“将我的屁股放在绳子上”,这个短语的正确意思是:“两肋插刀,不惜一切”。因此,当美国人说"I should put my ass on the line for you."时,他/她要表达的意思就是:"I should help you as possible as I can."、"I should try my best to support you."。
情景对白:
Terry: You've done me a great favor today. Otherwise, I must have lost my job.
泰瑞:你今天可帮了我一个大忙,要不然我工作就保不住了。
Benjamin: We're friends, right? I should put my ass on the line for you. I believe you'll do the same for me someday.
本杰明:我们是朋友,对吧?我理应为你两肋插刀的,我相信有朝一日你也会为我这么做的。
