核心句型:
Don't just pay lip service to what I ask of you.
对于我要求你做的事,别只是口头敷衍。
pay lip service最初是指那些在教堂做礼拜的人,机械式的背诵圣经经文,并没有思考经文当中的意思。现在这个短语意思引申为:“口头敷衍,说一套做一套”。pay lip service意思是“假装同意,口头上敷衍”。因此,当美国人说"Don'tjust pay lip service to what I ask of you."时,他/她要表达的意思就是:"Don't be perfunctory to what I tellyou to do."、"Do what you're told to do."。
情景对白:
Terry: I will make a new sales plan as soon as possible.

Boss: Don't just pay lip service to what I ask of you. You always drag your feet.
老板:对于我要求你做的事,别只是口头敷衍。你做事老是拖拖拉拉的。
