Stick in the mud 保守

如果一個人被形容為 stick in the mud 那就說明此人很保守,墨守成規,不喜歡新事物,缺乏創意。


John is such a stick in the mud, he never wants to go anywhere other than Spain for his holiday.

Don't be a stick in the mud; let's try the other restaurant for a change.


不要混淆另一個短語的意思。As clear as mud 意思是混亂,不清晰。

For example: His instructions were as clear as mud.
