1. Get Up on the Wrong Side of the Bed = wake up in a bad mood
起床时心情很坏。
范例对话:
A: Whats the matter with Bernard today? He started shouting from the moment he stepped into the office.
B: I dont know. He usually doesnt act that way at all. I guess he got up on the wrong side of the bed.
A: Just because he woke up in a bad mood is no reason for him to be so cross and to go around shouting at everybody.
B: Hopefully hell relax as the day goes on.
A: Amen!

2. Get the Ax = be dismissed, fired
美国式的炒鱿鱼是接斧头,表示被解雇。
范例对话:
A: I feel sorry for Richard. He was feeling quite depressed when I ran into him.
B: Did he tell you what was bothering him?
A: Among other things, he informed me that he got the ax at work.
B: Thats strange. Hes always been a conscientious worker. I wonder why they dismissed him from his job?
A: Evidently he had a disagreement on company policies with one of the top executives.

3. In the Hole = in debt
中国人说债台高垒,美国人说掉进债窟。In the hole表示欠债。
范例短文:
Unfortunately, Peter had to sell his neighborhood hardware store. Because of competition from the bigger stores in the shopping center, he was going in the hole every month. His store was small and did not generate enough income to meet expenses. As a consequence, he was rapidly losing money and going into debt.
