  核心句型:

  Don't try to pull rank on me.

  别对我摆架子。

  pull rank on sb. 源自军队中级别较高的军官利用职权欺压下属,所以这个短语的正确意思是:“仗势欺压,摆架子”。因此,当美国人说"Don't try to pull rank on me."时,他/她要表达的意思就是:"Don't put onairs."、"Don't ride the high horses in front of me."。

  情景对白:

  Peter: My document is very urgent. The president is waiting for it. Let me use the copier first.

  彼得:我的文件非常紧急,总裁等着要呢。让我先复印吧。

  Benjamin: Don't try to pull rank on me. We're all equal here. My document is urgent, too.

  本杰明:别对我摆架子,这里人人平等,我的文件也急着要用呢。

  搭配句积累:

  ①I am not your underling.

  我不是你的下属。

  ②Sorry, I'm not doing it on purpose.

  抱歉,我不是有意的。

  ③You'll suffer from it if you don't change your style.

  如果你不改变这种作风,你会尝到恶果的。

  ④I hate people who bully others by flaunting one's powerful connections.

  我讨厌狐假虎威的人。

  单词:

  1. put on airs 摆架子

  在公司别摆架子,因为每个人都有自己的优点。

  She had better not put on airs with me. I won't like it.

  她最好不要对我摆架子,我不喜欢那一套。

  2. underling n. 下属

  Every underling feared him.

  所有的手下都怕他。

  Once an underling, always an underling.

  一旦是下僚,永远都是一个下僚。
