发表时间:2018-03-09内容来源:VOA英语学习网
Helen is finding her mobile phone company a nightmare to deal with. Neil uses an expression to desCRIbe her feeling and comes up with a suggestion. 海伦认为手机公司就是她的梦魇。尼尔使用了一个表达方式来形容她的感觉,并提出了建议。 Neil: Hello and welcome to The English We Speak from BBC Learning English, I'm Neil. 尼尔:大家好,欢迎收听BBC英语教学频道的地道英语节目。我是尼尔。 Helen: And I'm Helen. 海伦:我是海伦。 Neil: Helen, you look upset, what's the matter? Have I done something wrong? 尼尔:海伦,你看上去很烦恼,发生了什么?我做错什么了吗? Helen: Oh, it's not you. It's my mobile phone company. I stopped my contract three months ago and they are still taking money out of my bank account. And it's impossible to get through to customer service. 海伦:哦,与你无关。是手机公司。三个月以前我终止了和手机公司的合同,可是他们仍然从我的银行帐户扣钱。而且客服电话也打不通。 Neil: Oh, no, I know what you mean. These mobile phone companies are a nightmare to deal with. They are a real pain in the neck. 尼尔:哦,天哪,我知道你的意思。这些手机公司简直就像噩梦一样。他们真是让人讨厌。 Helen: Pain in your neck? Are you OK? You don't look so comfortable sitting in that chair? Is your neck hurting you? 海伦:你的脖子疼?你还好吗?看起来你坐的那个椅子的确不太舒服。你的脖子很疼吗? Neil: I'm alright. My neck is a bit stiff but ok. When people say pain in the neck, it means something or someone is annoying, actually very annoying for a long time. Here are a few more examples: 尼尔:我很好。我的脖子有点儿硬,不过还好。人们用pain in the neck这个短语来形容令人讨厌的人或事,是那种长时间烦人的人或事。下面是一些例句: Examples 例句 Sam is so disruptive in the class, he's a pain in the neck to deal with. 山姆总在课堂上捣乱,他真令人讨厌。 Completing this tax form is a real pain in the neck, there are so many boxes to fill in. 填写这份纳税表太烦人了,有那么多项要填。 The telesales people are a real pain in the neck, they keep ringing me. 电话销售人员真烦人,他们一直给我打电话。 Helen: Well, I am really really really annoyed by this mobile phone company. They are a real pain in the neck to deal with. 海伦:我真的特别特别烦这个手机公司。他们真是太讨厌了。 Neil: My suggestion is that if they are still taking money out of your account, threaten them with legal action Helen. 尼尔:海伦,如果他们还从你的银行帐户扣钱,我的建议是你警告他们你会采取法律行动。 Helen: I will do that. Thanks for the tip. 海伦:我会这么做的。谢谢你的建议。 Neil: You're welcome. 尼尔:不客气。 来自:VOA英语网 文章地址: http://www.tingvoa.com/html/20180309/540970.html
