VOA流行美语 74: SLACK OFF / PEON今天Michael提前下班,在路上碰到李华。李华会学到两个常用语: to slack off和peon。L: 嘿, Michael, 你今天怎么这么早就下班啦?M: Well, this is the holiday season, so everyone at work is slacking off. No one minds if I leave early.L: 你说是因为过节,早下班没人会介意,而且办公室里每个人都在slacking off? 那是做什么呀?M: (Chuckles) I said everyone is "slacking off". "To slack off" means just the opposite of "being busy". "To slack off" means "to not work hard".L: 噢,to slack off的意思和"努力工作"刚好相反。我懂了,你是说,因为过节,所以同事们都比较放松-- Everyone at work is slacking off. 可是,Michael, 你自作主张提前下班,是不是有一点太slack off了呢?M: Oh, I certainly don't worry about it, because I noticed even my boss is slacking off. He left even earlier than I did.L: 你们公司老板比你走得还早,看来,他比你更加slack off。说得也是,马上就要新年了,连我也觉得挺懒散,什么事都不想做。M: That's Ok. You're on vacation. You have very good reasons to be slacking off.L: 虽然说是放假,可是我本来打算利用假期多读些英文书,我要是这么懒散,恐怕连一本书也读不完了。M: I wish it were holiday all the time, so I could always slack off.L: 什么?你想每天都放假,那你就可以老这么轻松的了?嘿,Michael,我们中文里常说:"一张一驰"。Slack off一段时间以后,你就应该努力工作啦!M: Hmm. Maybe you are right. Sometimes after slacking off during a holiday or vacation, we do feel refreshed and y to get back to work again.L: 也是啊,适当放松一下,工作起来会更带劲儿。新年快到了,我确实应该slack off for a couple of days, 可是如果slack off的时间太长了,我心里就会觉得不安。******L: 哎,Michael, 你提早下班,万一公司有什么要紧事,你不担心同事会找你吗?M: Oh, don't worry about that. I am not that important, I'm just a peon where I work.L: 你是什么?a peon? 那是什么呀?M: I said I am a Peon. The word "peon" originally meant someone who did manual labor in order to pay off a debt. These days, though, people use "peon" to refer to an unimportant person at work who performs a simple task.L: 噢,peon这个词原来是指"为了还债而做苦工的人",现在呢,大家用peon这个词来指那些在公司里做简单工作,地位比较低的雇员。Oh, come on Michael, 你怎么能说自己在公司不重要呢?M: No, I'm just a peon at my workplace. Anyone could do my job.L: 嗯,要是谁都能做你的工作,那恐怕是一个peon了。中文系的李教授常常对我们说,你要不好好干,好多人都等着这个位子呢。看来,我才是一个真正的peon呢。M: Well, maybe you are easy to replace. But that's no reason for you to feel like a peon.L: 你说得对,我不应该自己觉得我做的工作不重要,而且,想想看,我们大学校长或是你们公司老板恐怕当年也做过好一段时间的peon呢!今天李华学到了两个常用语,一个是: to slack off, 意思是"松懈,懒散"。另一个是peon, 指"在工作单位做简单工作的人",也就是所谓的"小土豆"。 /200602/3149

Now why don't you just tell me what's on your mind. Vocabulary:(词汇)close friends: (好朋友)pals who like each other very muchon your mind: (放在心上)what you're thinking about本单元的语言点是 used to 的用法,used to 意思是过去常常,请看下面例句Used toUses:(用法)We can use used to to talk about things: 1. we did regularly in the past that we don't do nowShe used to smoke 20 a day but gave up cigarettes almost 10 years ago. He used to eat lots of meat but now he's a vegetarian so he doesn't eat chicken, lamb or beef any more.2. that were true in the past but which aren't true nowYou and John just don't seem as close as you used to be.

We can't use 'used to' to talk about the present or future.To talk about your daily habits you can't say 'Every day I use to go to work by bike' you need to use the present simple - 'I go to work by bike'To talk about future habits you can't say 'When I live in New York next year, I'll use to take the subway everywhere', you need to use will + base verb - 'I'll take the subway' /200707/16043
