英语常用口语11 – Get up on the wrong side of bed


Get up on the wrong side of bed (or get out of the wrong side of bed, or wake up on the wrong side of bed): To seem grouchy on a particular day; to begin the day feeling unhappy and uncomfortable.

这个常用口语的字面意思是“睡觉睡错边了”或者“起床起错边了”。每个人睡觉的时候都会习惯睡床的某一边,如果睡错边了,醒来的时候会感到很不舒服,心情不好。所以当一个人某天心情不好,脾气烦躁,或感到干什么都不顺利的时候,就可以用睡觉睡错边了来形容。

造句:

1). Did you get up on the wrong side of bed this morning? You are a real grouch! (你今天早上是不是发现你睡觉睡错边了?你是满腹牢骚。)

2). I got up on the wrong side of bed yesterday, and everything that could go wrong did! (我昨天可以说是万事不顺,所有可能出错的事都发生了。)
