核心句型:
He refused to bow and scrape to the boss.
他不愿奉承老板。
bow and scrape形容弯下腰给别人擦掉鞋子上的灰尘,意喻:“点头哈腰、奉承巴结、卑躬屈膝、奴颜婢膝。”因此,当美国人说"He refused to bow and scrape to hisboss."时,他/她要表达的意思就是"He didn't like tofawn on his boss."、"He wouldn't like to flatter hisboss."。
情景对白:
Terry: He could have said something nice to play upto the boss. How embarrassed the boss was!
