    big brother is watching you 老大哥正在監視著你呢

    Context:
    A Birthday Party
    …(前文略)
    *前文請參閱第931期
    The other girls’ escorts soon joined Mike and everyone went off in taxis to the party, but not before Julie’s father had a cautionary word for them. “Have a wonderful time, but don’t forget that big brother will be watching you.” No one was quite sure whether he was joking or not.

    生日派對
    其他女孩的貼身護衛很快地加入Mike,也從計程車下車前往派對,不過在那之後,Julie的爸爸下了一道命令:「你們可以好好玩,但別忘了老大哥正在監視著你們喔!」在場的人沒人知曉他爸這麼說,到底是認真的還是在開玩笑。

     

    • 片語: big brother is watching you老大哥正在監視著你呢
    • 定義:Someone in authority is watching you closely. Often now used humorously as well as seriously.
    • 例句:
    • Although they are in many ways a safety feature in city centers, many people feel that surveillance cameras are an invasion of privacy, a reminder that big brother is watching you.

    雖然這個市中心的監視系統的確在各個方面都是一項安全措施,但是許多市民卻覺得這是違反隱私的行為,就像是一直有個大哥在監控著他們

    • I didn’t realize that some of the parents were coming on the school trip; it will definitely be a case of big brother is watching you!

    我實在是無法理解為何這些孩子的家長居然會跟著來參加校外教學,這絕對是一個監控行為啊!
