轻松日记商务职场篇 第39期:不要指望别人

Don't bank on your colleagues to help you out of trouble.
不要指望同事来帮你摆脱困难。
bank on这个短语的正确意思是:“指望、依赖”。因此,当美国人说"Don't bank on your colleagues to help you out of trouble."时,他/她要表达的意思就是:"Don't rely on your colleagues to help you with your problem."、"Don't depend on your workmates to help you out."。
情景对白:
Shirley: Oh, I have so much work to do. Maybe I should ask my colleagues for help.
雪莉:哦,工作真多啊。也许我应该找同事帮忙。
Benjamin: Honey, don't bank on your colleagues to help you out of trouble. They all have their own work to do.
本杰明:亲爱的,不要指望同事来帮你摆脱困境。他们都有自己的工作要做呀。
搭配句积累:
You must learn to deal with problems by yourself.
你要学会自己处理问题。
Not everyone is willing to help you.
不是每个人都愿意帮助你的。
Only your own efforts can prove your ability.
只有自己努力才能证明你的能力。
