    go against the grain 不符合個人的意願、不合常理

    Context:
    Closure of a Local Bookshop
    Bankruptcy has been staring us in the face for some months and we wanted to act before we had to call in the receiver. It goes against the grain to accept defeat, but we must acknowledge that we have reached the end of the road.
    [前文詳見上期]
    一家在地書店的歇業通知
    其實這幾個月來,破產的事實就擺在眼前;而我們一直想在真正宣告破產之前努力做點什麼。我們真的不想接受失敗這件事,但是我們不得不承認,我們真的是走投無路了。

     

    • 片語: go against the grain 不符合個人的意願、不合常理
    • 定義:to be against someone’s usual ideas or feelings
    • 例句:
    • I went against the grain for the shopkeeper not to call the police when he discovered the thief, but he was obviously starving and had stolen food.

    我居然違背常理的要那位老闆不要報警,因為他發現那個小偷顯然快餓死了,所以他才偷拿店家的食物。

    • Mary has taken time off work to look after the children and she is so independent that it goes against the grain to ask her husband for money.

    Mary利用下班時間照顧小孩,而且她在經濟上超級獨立的,絕口不跟老公要錢。
