    《En成席HR美语小故事》:今天早些收工吧

    It's time to pack up1.今天早些收工吧。

    【Marsha’s Note】

    You know what, “pack up or wrap up” is really an out-and-out2 American idiom, popular among office clerks or white-collars, who are so eager to say this phase as they are tired out to death3 for a whole day’s work, as like as not. Sure, there are quite a lot of similar expressions in our daily conversations, say, “Let’s call it a day!” or ”Ok, it is high time to knock off”, all of which means “let’s stop work for the day”.

    你知道吗?“pack up or wrap up” 真的是一个地道的美国习语,办公室文员或白领人士,干完一天的工作,累得要死,多半会都会迫不及待地说出这个短语,以表露自己的心情。当然,我们日常会话中还有许多类似的说法,比如:“咱们收工吧!”,或者“该是下班的时间了。”所有这些表达形意思都一样—“我们今天的工作就到此为止吧”。

    [1]Andrew Yan, of late, seems to have been totally hooked on 4(着迷于)YY online teaching at ID: 2831. So he is as busy as a bee5 all day long, preparing the teaching materials, giving lessons for many hours on line while lending an ear to his wife once in a while, who prattles on about6 the neighborhood gossip. What’s more, he is also fully occupied with translation stuff assigned by different translation companies scattered at every corner in the whole country.

    [1]近期,阎先生好像对YY2831频道网络授课非常痴迷。所以整天都忙得不亦乐乎,又是备课呀,又是上几个小时的课,还要时不时听听老婆的闲言碎语,她会闲聊和唠叨一些左邻右舍的八卦事儿,尽是张家长李家短的琐事。而且,他还要忙着应付全国各地翻译公司派来的翻译活儿。

    [2]At almost 12:00 last night, he was up to the elbows in preparing the teaching materials for the next day when his wife yelled as she was too tired to stay on, “Hey, man! It's time to pack up. If you work from dawn to night like this day by day, you are actually burning the candle at both ends.”

    [2]昨晚快到12:00了,他正埋头伏案为明天上课准备教学材料,就在这时他老婆叫喊起来,她太困倦了,不能再坐着陪他了。她对他说:“喂,伙计!该收工了!你要是天天这样从早忙到晚,你简直是在玩命!”

    [3]At this, Mr. Yan answered back without delay, “True enough, but I have to keep the ball rolling on and on. You know what, if I don’t try to work that way, what I have learned will be all ashes when I die.”

    [3]一听到这话,阎先生立马就回嘴:“你说得不错,可是我就得这样折腾下去呀。你想想看,假如我不这样做,等我一死,我学到的那点东西全都要全部化为灰烬。”

    【指点迷津】

    1.pack up or wrap up:call it a day= knock off= stop work for the day=下班=收工=今天的工作就到此为止

    2.out and out= out-and-out:emphasize that someone or something has all the characteristics of a particular type of person or thing=十足的=完全的=彻头彻尾的=地道的

    The Olympic theme tune 'Friends for Life’ proved an out-and-out success.结果证明奥运会主题歌《永远的朋友》极为成功。

    Much of what has been written about us is out-and-out lies. 关于我们的报道大都是彻头彻尾的胡编乱造。

    3.tired out to death= worn out=suffer from fatigue=be fatigued=have used a lot of energy and you want to rest or sleep=感到累和疲劳=简直累死了

    He was obviously tired out. 他显然筋疲力尽了。

    I am utterly fatigued.我完全累坏了。

    She was tired out by these long vigils. 长期熬夜使她筋疲力竭。

    Some rural women like to get together to prattle on about the village gossip.一些村妇好挤在一起,闲扯些村里的事。

    Unlike some people who prattle on endlessly about the public welfare but don't do anything about it, Chen Guangbiao just bends himself (热心于;致力于;专心于) by engaging in the public welfare undertakings, particularly by donating whatever he can afford for the benefit of the people in need. 和某些无休止地瞎聊公益事业但无动于衷的人不同,陈光标热心于公益事业,特别是向那些穷苦的人们倾囊相助。

    7. burn the candle at both ends=exhaust oneself by trying to do too many things超负荷地工作而耗尽精力=操劳过度=会累死的(过分耗费;不顾身体过度劳累(尤指日夜都有活动))

    You can't burn the candle at both ends forever. 你不能永远这么过分地消耗精力。

    Once in a while, we have to burn the candle at both ends to put a spurt on and finish an urgent talks.我们偶尔不得不加一把劲,赶紧完成 紧急的任务。
