오늘의 표현은 Pet peeve 입니다.

Today we are going to learn a common expression. But before we find out what it means, let’s listen to today’s conversation. 그럼 오늘의 대화를 들어보면서 ‘pet peeve’가 무슨 뜻인지 알아 보겠습니다. 잘 들어보세요.

Pet peeve

Alice: Why are you coming in holding your nose like that?

Jason: It’s because there are people right outside the entrance of this building just smoking away. They’re not even smoking at the designated smoking area! That’s a really pet peeve of mine.

Alice: Oh! I know what you mean. That’s my pet peeve too.

본문에서 Jason이 무슨 안 좋은 냄새를 맡은 모양입니다. 코를 막고 건물 안으로 들어오자 Alice가 “Why are you coming in holding your nose like that? 왜 그렇게 코를 잡고 들어오니?”라고 묻습니다. 그러자 Jason은 “It’s because there are people right outside the entrance of this building just smoking away. 입구 바로 앞에서 담배를 피우는 사람들이 있어서 그래. They’re not even smoking at the designated smoking area! That’s a really pet peeve of mine. 게다가 지정된 흡연 장소도 아니라고! 정말 불쾌하고 짜증나.”라고 화를 냅니다. 그러자 Alice도 “Oh! I know what you mean. That’s my pet peeve too. 그래! 무슨 말인지 잘 알아. 나도 그런 사람들이 제일 싫어.”라고 맞장구를 칩니다.
