今天是星期六,Michael 和李华到购物中心去买东西。李华喜欢买衣服,Michael
喜欢看电脑, 所以他们决定各自先去买东西,然后中午在吃饭的地方碰头。今天
李华会学到两个常用语:to rip off 和straight answer。

L: 嗨,Michael, 在这儿!
M: Hi, Li Hua! Hey, what did you buy?
L: 今天我真高兴,你看,买了那么多衣服才花了我七十五美元。那 店要关门了,
东西全都半价。Michael, 你买了什么?
M:bought a pairtennis shoes. Whenbought them,thoughtwas a good deal,
but latersaw the same pair at another store for much less.got ripped off.
L: 你买了一双网球鞋。让我看看。挺好的嘛!Michael, 你刚才说的 最后一句话
我没有听懂,什么是got ripped off? 是不是上当受骗的 意思?
M: Yes,be ripped off meansbe cheated.
L: 你看,我还猜对了。Michael, 你为什么不把买的网球鞋去退掉,再到便宜的店
去买呢?
M:wanteddo that, but whenwent backthe first store,saw a sign that said
"All Sales are Final". So,guess there's nothingcan really do about it.
L: 哟,还不让退货,这可真倒霉。那你买鞋的时候怎么没看见不让 退货的牌子
呢?
M:was just too eagerbuy these shoes. If you buy something and then find out that
itof poor quality, you can also say you were ripped off.
L: 噢,买了东西后发现质量很差也可以说to be riffed off。对了,我上 个月从网
上买了一部DVD 电影,可是我在看电影的时候好几次都卡住 了,害得我连结尾
都没看上。
M:guess I'm not the only one who got ripped off.
L: 买东西真是要小心。得了,我们去买饭吧!
(Michael 和李华吃完饭以后)
L: 时间不早了,该回去了。搭地铁去吧!
M: Sure! That was fun, Li Hua, buthavestop spending so much money.
L: 我也不该花那么多钱。嗨,Michael, 你不是申请去一个公司实习,他们会付你
一些工资的吗?那他们有没有决定要雇用你啊?
M: No, they just keep telling me that they will let me know soon.wish the company
would just give me a straight answer.
L: Straight answer? 是什么意思啊?
M: Well, if you are looking for a straight answer, that means you want someonegive
you a direct answer and tell you the truth.
L: 噢,straight answer 就是直接了当,或者是实事求是的回答。
M: That's right. For instance,could see that my last roommate was unhappy living in
our apartment,asked him why, butcould never get himgive me a straight answer.
L: 为什么你以前同宿舍的人既不高兴和你住在一起可是又不告诉你 真正的原因
呢?后来他不是搬出去了吗?
M: Yes, he did give me a straight answer after he moved out. It turned out he wanted to
movewith his girlfriend.
L: 他搬出去以后才老实地告诉你他是要搬去和女朋友一起住。我 还以为他不喜
欢你把屋子弄得乱糟糟的呢。
M: Li Hua,think you are the only one whobothered by that. Well, thisour stop.
Do you still wantcome overmy messy apartment? Give me a straight answer.
L: 我才不信只有我一个人批评你把屋子弄得乱七八糟。不管你家乱 不乱,我当
然得去呀,我的书还在你哪里嘛!

今天李华学到两个常用语,一个是:to rip off,意思是受骗,上当;另一个是:straight
answer,意思是坦率,老实的回答。这次[流行美语]就到此结束,我们下次再见。
