畅谈股票之一

时间:2022-1-1 作者:普特英语网

股市最红火的时候几乎是全民皆股,可自从去年调整印花税以来,股市一直是动荡不安,被套的股民数不胜数。他们见面最常聊的就是“你的股票如何了”?

Kelly: So, Jim, how has everything been with you? Jim: My stocks are losing a little bit, but it’s nothing too serious. Kelly: Of course! Stocks, stocks, stocks…Some things never change! Jim: Yeah. How have you been? Kelly: Good, except for all the counterfeit money my software business has been receiving lately. Jim: Really? Is that a big problem? Kelly: Yeah. So I have to invest in one of those machines that can detect fake bills. Jim: Why didn’t you just buy one of those little things with a red light beam? Kelly: Those red beams can’t sniff out the high-quality fakes. Jim: Sounds like a big hassle. Kelly: It’s a drain on small business – a real sore spot.

Notes:

1. 对话中Kelly碰见了 Jim,两个人在谈论彼此的现状。询问现状,可以像对话中的那样,How has everything been with you? 还可以说How have you been? 或者How is everything going on with you?

2. Jim说近期我们的股票赔了一点,但还不太紧急。Kelly一听说股票就不耐烦了,股票,股票,一直股票,真是江山易改,本性难移。Some things never change! 这句话就是说,有的习惯永远改不了,说难听一点就是狗改不了吃屎。俗话说,牛牵到北京还是牛。这里大部分时候指的是不好的习惯或者错误一犯再犯,所以下次假如你发现其他人死性不改,就可以说这句话还表示你的无奈和抗议。大家来用一个对话做例子:—I can’t believe Tom’s late again! —Well, some things never change. Just give him a call. —真不敢相信汤姆又迟到了。—狗改不了吃屎,给他打个电话吧。

3. 那样Kelly近期如何呢?还很好,就是近期卖电脑软件一直收到伪钞,counterfeit money,意思就是伪钞。Counterfeit,既可以作名词,也可以作形容词,表示“伪造的,假冒的;赝品”,譬如说,This ten-dollar bill is a counterfeit. 这张10美金的钞票是伪钞。

4. Kelly的问题还挺紧急的,她不能不烧钱买一台验钞机。这里大家可以看出,伪钞的另一种说法就是fake bills。Jim问为何不买一支小小的带红光的机器呢?还要破费一大笔钱买一台验钞机。Kelly说那红光根本没方法测出制作精良的伪钞。

5. 听起来还真伤脑筋。Sounds like a big hassle. hassle 这个词表示“麻烦”的意思,所以当你感觉某事做起来相当麻烦,就可以跟他们说这句话,委婉地表示“听起来真头痛。”大家用一个对话来做例子,—Oh, no! I forgot to put in the cables. I have to repack all these parcels. —Sounds like a hassle. —噢,不会吧!我忘了把电缆线放进来了,我还要重新打包。—听起来真是麻烦。 6. sniff sth/sb out 这个词组表示“发现某人,找出某人”,比如:They were determined to sniff out the murderer. 他们下定决心必须要找到杀人犯。Kelly抱怨说,小本业务加上资金损失,实在是被人伤神啊。Sore spot,指“痛处”,这里是用来形容收到伪钞的痛苦。
