核心句型:
You'd better hedge your bets.

你最好给自己留条后路。

hedge one's bets 直译过来就是:“用树篱笆围住某人的赌注”,在口语中表示努力使自己做到万无一失,避免可能的损失(尤指不只把钱投在一种生意上),所以这个习语的正确意思也就是:“躲避风险,留条后路”。因此,当美国人说"You'd better hedge your bets."时,他/她要表达的意思就是:"You should leave yourself a route to retreat."、"Leave yourself a way out."。

情景对白:
Jane: I've made up my mind and I'm gonna submit my resignation after work today.

简:我下定决心了,准备今天下班后递交辞呈呢。

Shirley: Are you serious? Well, you'd better hedge your bets. Don't fall out with the general manager while resigning.

雪莉:你是认真的?好吧,你最好给自己留条后路。辞职时不要跟总经理闹翻。

搭配句积累:
①Don't rush to resign before contacting a new job.

还没有联系好新工作以前,先不要忙着辞职。

②Don't displease everyone before you quit.

不要在你离开之前把所有人都得罪了。

③Be sure to have your offer in hand before you resign.

确保在递交辞呈之前已是聘书在手。

④Keep in touch with coworkers you have worked with, for they may lend you a hand someday.

和以前的同事保持联系,或许日后他们能帮到你。
