Jason: Trust me! I’ve grilled plenty of hamburgers in the past and I know when my burgers are done!
Jen: Okay, if that’s the case, I’ll give you the benefit of the doubt!
Jason: Thanks

제가 Jason에게 “Mmm~ smell good. Are the hamburgers almost done? 음! 냄새 좋네. 햄버거 거의 다 됐니?”라고 묻자 Jason이 “Yes it is. 응, 다 됐어. Go grab a plate and I’ll give you one.” 라고 하네요. 그러자 제가 “Wait. Are you sure it’s done? It doesn’t look like it cooked all the way through. 야, 햄버거 제대로 구워진 거야? It’s still a little pink. 아직도 덜 익은 것 같은데.”라고 대답했습니다. Jason은 “Trust me! 내 말 믿어! I’ve grilled plenty of hamburgers in the past and I know when my burgers are done! 내가 햄버거 한 두 번 구워봤니? 척 보면 알지.” 라고 합니다. 이어 제가 “Okay, if that’s the case, 알았어 I’ll give you the benefit of the doubt! 우선 믿어 볼게.”라고 대답했습니다.

오늘의 영어 표현은 Benefit of the doubt 입니다. When giving someone the benefit of the doubt, you believe what he or she is saying despite the uncertainty. Benefit of the doubt는 상대방 말에 확신이 서지는 않지만 우선 믿어주는 걸 말합니다. 여기서 benefit은 ‘유리 혹은 이익’이라는 뜻이고, doubt는 ‘의심’ 이라는 의미죠. 그러니까 상대방이 의심스러운 행동을 보이더라도 우선 좋게 봐주자, 상황이 불확실한 경우 우선 상대에게 유리하게 해석해주자는 뜻이 되는 것입니다. Now let’s listen to the conversation again.
