地道英语:背后捅刀子Stab in the back

Stab in the back 背后捅刀子

Neil: Hello and welcome to Authentic Real English!

Neil with you here, and joining me is Feifei.

Feifei: 大家好!本期《地道英语》节目要给大家讲解的短语是 stab in the back. So Neil, how are you?

Neil: [Distracted] What? Oh, not bad. Well... no, no, I'm fine. Nothing, it's nothing, really.

Feifei: 我怎么觉得你好像有什么事儿瞒着我?You're not telling me something. What's the matter? 到底发生了什么?快说。

Neil: No, not really. I'm just annoyed with Jim. I don't really want to talk about it.

Feifei: But I thought you were friends. 你俩这还朋友呢。

Neil: Well, we were friends, until I discovered he stabbed me in the back...

Feifei: Stabbed you in the back?! 背后捅了你?

Neil: Yes, exactly! He had a meeting with the boss, and right there, he stabbed me in the back! In front of everyone! I'm really annoyed.

Feifei: But, surely you're more than annoyed! 捅了你?真庆幸没大碍。I mean, it's lucky he didn't kill you. What did he stab you with? A knife?

Neil: Ah, no. He stabbed me in the back with his words. There was no actual violence. To stab someone in the back means to betray someone. He knew that I wanted to handle the new video project, and he said that he'd help me get it. But then in the meeting he told the boss that I didn't have enough experience to do a project like that.

Feifei: Stab in the back 的意思是“背后捅刀子”;这个说法和汉语里的用法相似,表达背叛某人,暗箭伤人,背后插刀。Neil 说他的好哥们要帮他争取新视频节目的项目,可在老板面前却说又说他经验不足,项目不能给他。唉,你说这个人,真是太不地道了!

Neil: Here are some more examples of 'stab in the back'.

Examples

A lot of young people think you have to stab people in the back to get ahead in business, but you don't.

She told me she was in love with me, but then she stabbed me in the back and went out with Dave.

I wouldn't trust Laura if I were you. She's nice to your face, but then she stabs you in the back.

Feifei: So, you're not happy with Jim. But personally I'm just relieved. It could have been a lot worse. I mean, you're not actually hurt. Remember sticks and stones may break your bones but words will never hurt you.

Neil: Well, that's an expression for another programme!

Feifei: You're right. 这次教给大家的短语是 stab in the back. Not a very nice thing to do.

Neil: Join us again soon for Authentic Real English.

Both: Bye!
