Cheesed off 惱火的
The script of this programme 本節目台詞
(Finn comes in the office where Li is working and he looks very angry)
Li: Hi Finn. Oh, you don't look that happy today... Here, have a bit of cheese.
Finn: No thanks, Li.
Li: It's tasty! Italian cheese – my favourite.
Finn: Thank you, Li. But, I'm sorry, I'm just in a terrible mood today. Do you know I have to spend the whole weekend writing a report?
Li: Oh really…?
Finn: Well, the boss said my first draft wasn't good enough and asked me to do the whole thing again by Monday!
Li: Oh, not much fun. Sorry Finn. Are you sure you don't want some cheese?
Finn: No. No cheese for me, thanks. I'm… I'm really cheesed off!
Li: Cheesed off? Is that a medical problem…? You can't eat cheese?
Finn: No. In English, 'to be cheesed off' means to be really annoyed. I'm so cheesed off! You can also say 'to cheese someone off' – so writing reports really cheeses me off.
Li: 這麼說 to be cheesed off 的意思是令人感到生氣、惱火。Finn，你很不開心，因為你的老闆要你重新寫報告。你還可以把這個短語的結構變換一下說 it cheeses you off，某事讓你很惱火。周末還要工作，這件事讓你感到生氣。
Finn: Yes, it does. 'cheesed off' is today's expression in Authentic Real English. Let's hear some examples of how it's used.
- Working with Caroline is not easy. She gets really cheesed off when people don't agree with her.
- My sister cheeses me off. She borrows all my clothes and never returns them!
Li: No need to be cheesed off, Finn. I can help you with your report.
Finn: Oh, really? you're a sweetie, Li!
Li: But you have to do what I say…
Finn: Ok… what do I have to do?
Li: First thing: have some of this cheese!
Finn: Oh, okay. Mmm… mmmmm… this is quite delicious! Can I have some more, Li?
Li: You see. I knew you would feel better after eating something. You weren't just angry – you were hungry! Feeling a bit better now?
Finn: Oh, yes, lovely. Let's get this done. Bye.
