Jump the gun


Hi everyone, this is Jennifer Yoo and welcome to ENGLISH WITH YOO! 안녕하세요 English with Yoo! 의 Jennifer Yoo입니다.

오늘의 영어 표현은 Jump the gun 입니다.


Jump the gun

Jen: How did the interview go yesterday with that applicant?
Tony: It went well. I hired him on the spot.
Jen: Wait…already? Aren’t you jumping the gun on the hiring process?
Tony: Well, he had the skills and the characteristics I was looking for and plus, we need someone right away.

제가 Tony에게 “How did the interview go yesterday with that applicant? 어제 면접했던 지원자 어땠어?”라고 묻자, Tony가 “It went well. I hired him on the spot. 괜찮아서 그 자리에서 바로 채용했어.”라고 대답하고 있어요. 그러자 제가 “Wait…already? 뭐? 벌써? Aren’t you jumping the gun on the hiring process? 너무 서두른 거 아니야?”라고 묻자, Tony는 “Well, he had the skills and the characteristics I was looking for 그게 말이야, 능력이나 성격 모두 내가 원하던 것을 갖춘 사람이라서 그랬어 and plus, we need someone right away 그리고 무엇보다 일할 수 있는 사람이 당장 필요하거든.”이라고 말하고 있네요. Now we’ll listen to the conversation again. Listen carefully.

오늘의 영어표현은 Jump the gun 입니다. When someone jumps the gun, it means they do something too soon and act too hastily. Jump the gun은 ‘성급하게 행동하다’라는 뜻인데요, 신중하게 생각하지 않고 행동하는 경우에 사용할 수 있습니다. 달리기 시합을 할 때 선수들이 긴장 해서 출발 신호인 총소리가 나기도 전에 먼저 달려 나간 데서 생긴 표현입니다. 예를 한 번 들어볼까요? 이것 저것 따져보지 않고, 성급하게 결정을 내리는 친구에게 “You have to be more careful and not jump the gun. 성급하게 하지 말고, 조금 더 신중 하게 해”라고 말할 수 있어요. Here is another example. “Jake raised his voice at me before he even knew the whole situation, but later he apologized for jumping the gun. Jake는 상황도 잘 모르면서 나한테 목소리를 높였다. 그런데 성급하게 화를 냈다고 생각했는지 나중에 미안하다고 말했다” 라고 말할 수 있습니다. Now we’ll listen to this conversation for the last time.
