其它一些使用身体部位的表达

0

There are many American expressions that use parts of the body.  These include the eyes, ears, nose, mouth and even the heart. Today we will tell you some expressions that use other body parts – the back, shoulders and chest.美国有许多表达方式使用了身体的某些部位。这些部位包括眼睛、耳朵、鼻子、嘴巴,甚至心脏。今天我们会告诉你一些涉及到身体其他部位的表达,比如后背、肩膀和胸部。

When I am facing a lot of pressure at work, my back and neck will start to hurt.  Sometimes, this tension is the result of too much work.  I have too many things to do because my supervisor is on my back all the time.  In other words, my employer is always telling me to do things.当我在工作中面临很大的压力时,我的背和脖子就会开始疼。有时,这种紧张是工作太多的结果。我有太多的事情要做,因为我的主管总是在我的背上。换句话说,我的雇主总是让我做事。

Sometimes, I want to tell my employer to get off my back!  I want her to stop criticizing me and making too many demands on my time.  I can not say this, however.  I would never turn my back on her and refuse to help when there is a need.  If I did refuse to help, my supervisor might say bad things about me behind my back.  She might criticize me when I am not present.  This would surely be a stab in the back.  It is never kind to unfairly harm or say bad things about other people.有时候,我想告诉我的老板不要再烦我了!我希望她不要再批评我,不要再占用我太多的时间。然而,我不能这么说。我决不会背弃她,在需要的时候拒绝帮助她。如果我真的拒绝帮忙,我的上司可能会在我背后说我的坏话。当我不在的时候,她可能会批评我。这肯定是在背后捅刀子。不公正地伤害或说别人的坏话绝不是一件好事。

Sometimes, when I am very productive in my job, my employer gives me a pat on the back.  She praises my work.  She might even say “I will scratch your back if you will scratch mine.”  This means she will do something for me, if I do something helpful for her in exchange.  Such an offer usually comes straight from the shoulder.  My supervisor has a very direct, open and honest way of speaking.有时候,当我工作效率很高的时候,我的老板会表扬我。她表扬了我的工作。她甚至可能说:“如果你帮我挠背,我也帮你挠背。”这意味着如果我为她做一些有益的事情作为交换,她会为我做一些事情。这样的提议通常直接来自对方。我的上司说话非常直接、开放和诚实。

I know that my employer carries a lot on her shoulders.  She is responsible for many things at the office.  And because she is so important, she sometimes gets to rub shoulders with the top officials.  She gets to spend time with some very important people.我知道我的雇主肩负着很多责任。她负责办公室里的许多事情。因为她很重要,所以她有时会和高级官员接触。她有时间和一些重要的人在一起。

I believe the top official values my supervisor.  He never gives her the cold shoulder.  He is never unfriendly to her.  He always treats her like she is an important part of the organization.我知道我的雇主肩负着很多责任。她负责办公室里的许多事情。因为她很重要,所以她有时会和高级官员接触。她有时间和一些重要的人在一起。

I also value my supervisor.  In fact, I think she is very effective in her job.  Of course, I could yell my opinion at the top of my lungs, or as loudly as I possibly could.  It might even feel good to get my emotions off my chest.  It is always helpful to tell people how you feel so that your emotions do not trouble you. 我也重视我的上司。事实上,我认为她工作效率很高。当然,我可以扯开我的肺,或者尽可能大声地说出我的意见。把我的情绪一吐为快甚至可能感觉很好。告诉别人你的感受总是有帮助的,这样你的情绪就不会困扰你。

But it is not necessary for me to praise my supervisor.  Most of my co-workers feel the exact same way about her.  So, I think I will just save my breath. I will keep silent because talking or repeating myself will not do any good.但是我没有必要表扬我的上司。我的大多数同事都对她有同样的感觉。所以,我想我还是省省吧。我将保持沉默,因为说话或重复没有任何好处。
