Gimme a break!

May 10, 2017

こんにちは〜

仙台のプライベート英会話講師&翻訳者デイブです。

 

今日の話題は:One-Point English

 

Today, I went to the ward office (区役所)and the immigration office (入国管理局).

I hate going to these places.

 

Gimme a break!

 

って聞いたことありますか?「Gimme」は「Give me」の省略です。意味は「勘弁してくれ!」ということです。「Give me a break」の方でも「Gimme a break」の方でも使い方は簡単です。ただ言うだけですね。

 

例:

 

A: You're late! Again!

B: Gimme a break!

 

A: I'm sorry, you have cancer... (ガン)

B: Oh no... Give me a break...

 

使ってみてね!Do your best!

 

以上
