经典对话

他写的每月报告里出了好多错,结果他的主管发现之后,他居然都赖在我头上。


A: That's not fair. What did you do?

B: There wasn't really anything that I could do. There's always been a lot of bad blood between my manager and myself. If I had said anything, he would have fired me for sure.

恐怕不能,我只希望自己能坚持忍耐直到升职。


A: That's very sensible. It sounds like you have a good head on your shoulders.

这样很理智,你能这么想说明你还挺聪明的。


B: I try to be sensible about it, but it's not very easy. Sometimes I just have to grin and bear it.
