核心句型:
In order not to offend either of them, I prefer to sit on the fence.

为了不冒犯他们其中任何一人,我选择保持中立。

sit on the fence原来是指“在分家产的时候,骑在分割家产的篱笆上,不知应该选择哪一边”,现在这个短语常用来表示:“保持中立,采取骑墙观望的态度”。因此,当美国人说"In order not to offend either oft hem, I prefer to sit on the fence."时,他/她要表达的意思就是:"In order not to annoy either of them, I took a neutral stance on this issue."、"I'd remain neutral in the event so as not to displease either of them."。

情景对白:
Benjamin: Why not express your opinion? Which side are you on?

本杰明:你怎么不发表意见呢?你支持哪一方?

Terry: In order not to offend either of them, I prefer to sit on the fence.

泰瑞:为了不冒犯他们其中任何一人,我选择保持中立。
