如果你被形容為 top of the heap 那就是說你在財富、權利或能力上勝人一籌,冠絕群雄。

When it comes to photographers, Barbara is at the top of the heap. She's won so many awards.


如果說某事或某人是 on the scrap heap 意思就是此事或人已經被遺棄。


Marco was the first choice goalkeeper at his football club for many years. But when he got old, the manager bought a younger player and Marco ended up on the scrap heap.
