轻松日记商务职场篇 第25期:遵守规定不挨批

时间:2016-01-17   栏目:商务英语对话  点击:
核心句型:
Follow the rules and you won't get chewed out.
遵守规定你就不会挨批。
get chewed out直译过来就是:“被嚼碎了”,这个短语的正确意思是:“被训斥,挨批”。因此,当美国人说"Follow the rules and you won't get chewed out."时,他/她要表达的意思就是:"If you follow the rules, you won't be criticized."、"Follow the rules and nobody will find faults with you.".
情景对白:
Terry: My boss turned back to get his passport and found me playing computer games. So he roundly criticized me.
泰瑞:老板折回来拿护照,发现我在玩电脑游戏,很严厉地批评了我。
Benjamin: Follow the rules and you won't get chewed out.
本杰明:遵守规定你就不会挨批。
搭配句积累:

②I've learned a lession this time.

③I won't get late next time!
