Feifei
大家好,歡迎來到 BBC 英語教學的《道地英語》節目。我是馮菲菲。

Rob
And I’m Rob.

Feifei
你怎麼看著悶悶不樂的?

Rob
I’m… I’m ok.

Feifei
I thought you were off to a rock concert for your birthday this weekend?

Rob
Yeah, I was. I love rock music.

Feifei
那這是怎麼了?

Rob
Well, I booked my ticket a month ago. It wasn’t cheap. Three of my friends said they were coming too. But they just told me they forgot to book tickets, and now there are none left. 

Feifei
Oh, what a pain. I’m sorry. 

Rob
Yeah, I’m a bit miffed.

Feifei
I’m not surprised. Err, Rob, sorry to mention this while you’re feeling upset…

Rob
Yes…?

Feifei
Do you mind if I use ‘miffed’ as our word today?

Rob
Yeah, OK then. 

Feifei
我來給大家講講形容詞 “miffed” 的用法。這個詞可以形容我們因他人的行為而感到生氣、惱火。Rob 現在正因為他的朋友們忘了訂去看演唱會的票而很是惱火。Let’s just give Rob a minute, while we listen to these examples.

Examples     
You know what? I’ve been working really late all week to finish this proposal, but my boss hasn’t said a word of thanks. Yeah, you could say I’m pretty miffed.

Laura met this guy on holiday. She told me he was really special, and that they seemed serious about each other. But he hasn’t called in weeks. She’s really miffed about it.

You’d think that when you order a vegetarian pizza, it would come without meat. No wonder Martin was miffed when it arrived with ham on it!

Feifei
這裡是 BBC 英語教學的《道地英語》。本集節目裡教給大家的表達是 “miffed”,它用來形容人生氣、惱火。So, feeling any better yet, Rob?

Rob
Well, I just got a message. Get this: apparently my friends were joking.

Feifei
我知道他們是在和你開玩笑。

Rob
What?

Feifei
是我讓他們這麼說的,這樣我們就能借機給大家說說 “miffed” 這個詞。

Rob
Seriously?

Feifei
Yeah, you don’t mind, do you?

Rob
Of course I mind. You made me feel, well… miffed!

Feifei
Sorry about that.

Rob
And I’m miffed with you now!

Feifei
Rob, you know what?

Rob
What? 

Feifei
I got a ticket too. It is your birthday after all, I wouldn’t miss it!

Rob
Really? OK, all is forgiven!

Feifei
Bye. 

Rob
Byebye.
