    enough is enough  真是夠了,事情該告一段落了。

    Context:
    Closure of a Local Bookshop
    Book-lovers will be sad to hear that the owners of Morton’s, the well-known high street bookshop, have announced its closure. The family-owned bookshop has been selling its wares in the town for more than 50 years and it will be sorely missed.
    Mr. Robert Morton said last night, “We are having to close because of financial circumstances. It is Hobson’s choice. We have foughttooth and nail to keep the shop open, but our efforts have been unsuccessful. Now we have decided that enough is enough.

    一家在地書店的歇業通知
    Morton’s的管理人正式宣布歇業;它是當地一家高知名度、老字號的街口書店,相信愛書人一定會感到相當惋惜。這個家族代代傳承的老書店已經在當地經營了超過50年,大家未來都會想念這家店。
    Robert Morton昨晚宣布「因為一些經營上的問題,我們不得不宣布關閉。我們真的是毫無選擇了。其實我們已經竭盡所能地想要保住這家店,但是這些努力宣告失敗。最後我們決定,真的是夠了,這家店要吹熄燈號了。」

    • 片語: enough is enough 真是夠了,事情該告一段落了。
    • 定義:used to emphasize that it is time something came to an end or that you are not prepared to tolerate it anymore.
    • 例句:
    • Meg had been playing very loud music in her room all evening and finally her father shouted, “Turn that thing off! Enough is enough and I’m going to bed.”

    Meg 一整晚在房間播音樂播得超級大聲,最後他爸大吼:「給我把那個音響關掉!真的是夠了!我要準備睡覺了。」

    • Alan was used to borrowing large sums of money from his parents but they eventually refused to give him any more, saying, “Enough is enough! It’s time you earned some money of your own.”

    Alan 以前常跟他爸媽借很多錢,但是他們最後拒絕再借錢給兒子了。他們說:「夠了喔,這是最後一次了。現在應該輪到你自己賺錢回來才對吧。」
