오늘의 영어 표현은 Rub something in입니다.

Before we find out what today’s expression means, let’s listen to a conversation I had with Jason. 그럼 오늘의 대화를 들어보면서 ‘rub something in’ 이 무슨 뜻인지 알아 보겠습니다. 잘 들어보세요. Listen carefully.

Rub something in

Jen: I know I tripped in front of everyone, but you don’t have to rub it in. You’re making me feel more embarrassed.

Jason: Sorry, I didn’t mean to rub it in. I thought it was funny so I was just telling all of our friends. I’ll stop rubbing it in. Sorry.

제가 Jason에게 “I know I tripped in front of everyone, but you don’t have to rub it in. You’re making me feel more embarrassed. 사람들 앞에서 넘어진 거 갖고 그렇게 자꾸 들먹거릴 거 없잖아. 날 아주 당황스럽게 하네.” 라고 하자 Jason이 “Sorry, I didn’t mean to rub it in. I thought it was funny so I was just telling all of our friends. I’ll stop rubbing it in. Sorry. 미안해. 일부러 그러려고 한 건 아니고 그냥 재미있어서 친구들한테 말하다 보니까 그렇게 된 거야. 인제 그만 할게. 미안해” 라고 합니다.
