    it is the same story 還是類似的狀況

    Context:
    A disappointment – A letter of complaint from a dissatisfied customer.
    Dear Mr. Blake:
    ….(前文略)
    Having waited several hours for this phone call, which never came, I once again called the helpline, but it was the same story as before. The line was engaged for hours and, when I did eventually get through, I was told that the person who could deal with my complaint was not available. This time I asked for this person’s name and phoned him back only to discover it was his day off. I spent several days going from pillar to post without getting an explanation or an apology for the non-arrival of the sofa beds.

    [中譯]
    失望透頂—一封來自超級不滿的顧客抱怨信
    親愛的布萊克先生:
    …(前文略)
    在我等這通電話好幾個小時之後,我又打了一次服務專線,但還是同樣的情況。服務專線連續好幾個小時都忙線中,當我最後終於接通電話時,我才得知那個可以處理我問題的傢伙還是不在。這次我乾脆把他的名字給問了出來,直接打電話給他,才知道他今天根本就請假沒來上班。我在耶誕節之前就下訂的沙發床至今仍未到貨,我找遍天涯海角也沒等到任何一個解釋或抱歉。
     片語: it is the same story 還是類似的狀況
     定義:it is a similar situation
     例句:
    1. Our local garage had no petrol; we tried the one in the next town, but it was the same story there.
    我們當地的車廠已經沒有汽油了,當我去另一個小鎮找汽油時,竟然也是同樣的狀況。
    2. Our hotel has no vacancies and I think you’ll find it’s the same story everywhere in the area; there’s a big international conference being held in the town recently.
    我們旅館已經沒有空房了,我想在這個區域的每間旅館應該都是同樣的滿房狀態;畢竟最近這邊舉辦一個大型的國際會議。
    3. Last year Bill promised Meg faithfully that he would give up smoking, but it was the same story; he stopped for a few days and then started again.
    去年,Bill信誓旦旦的向Meg保證他絕對會戒菸,但還是故態復萌,他才戒了幾天,結果又繼續抽菸了。
