Hello, I'm a very interesting and intelligent man. And today, this mile and I will be teaching you some English idioms.

哈喽,我是个幽默聪明的人。今天我借用这个英里的概念教给大家几个英语习语。

A mile is a distance of 1,600 metres, used by strange British people like me... and weird Americans like him.

一英里是1600米,只有我这种奇怪的英国人...以及他那样奇怪的美国人会用这个概念。

I bet you've never been taught by a mile before.

我敢说没人上过这样的课吧!

Now, the thing is, if you wear clothes like that...

我想说的是,如果你穿成那样...

...or like this...

...或这样...

...you stick out a mile.

...那你会很显眼。

In English, if something is very obvious and easy to see, we say 'It sticks out a mile'.

在英语中,描述明显并轻易可见的事物时可以说'It sticks out a mile'.

It sticks out a mile.

明显的

Like my dog, Colin.

就像我的狗狗科林一样。

When I took Colin to work with me that time, we really stuck out a mile.

那时我带着它去上班,真的很扎眼。

Hello everybody! Come on Colin, come on boy. Good boy Colin, that's a boy. Come on Colin, come to me. Yes, good boy Colin, good boy. There's a good boy, yes Colin.

大家好!科林,过来,过来,宝贝。好宝贝,这就对了。过来,宝贝,到我这来。对了。好宝贝。这有一个好宝贝,没错,那就是科林。

Ah, my boss. He wants me to wear more 'normal' clothes.

啊,我老板。他嫌我穿的不够正式。

But if he tried to get me to dress like that, I'd run a mile.

但如果他想让我穿成那样,那我可不干。

In English, if we really don't want to get involved with something, we can say, 'I'd run a mile'.

在英语中,如果实在不想参与某事,我们可以说'I'd run a mile'.

I'd run a mile.

置身事外。

That's the problem with my boss. If I let him decide what clothes I wear, then next he'd want to decide my hairstyle...

这就是我上司的毛病。如果我同意他的穿衣建议,那么他接下来就该让我重新做发型了...

...where I live.

...让我搬家...

...who I go out with.

...我和谁出去约会。

...and even who I marry.

...甚至我和谁结婚都要管了。

Give him an inch he'll take a mile.

真是得寸进尺。

In English, if you want to say that someone who's been given a little bit of freedom then tries to take much more, you can say 'Give them an inch and they'll take a mile'.

在英语中,如果因为尝到了一点甜头进而想得到更多的做法,我们可以说'Give them an inch and they'll take a mile'.

'Give them an inch and they'll take a mile'.

得寸进尺。
