Walk all over somebody


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

오늘의 표현은 walk all over somebody입니다.


What does it mean to walk all over somebody? Let’s find out, but first we will listen to today’s conversation. 그럼 오늘의 대화를 들어보면서 ‘walk all over somebody’가 무슨 뜻인지 알아보겠습니다. 잘 들어보세요. Listen carefully.

Walk all over somebody
Jason: Man! My boss is walking all over me and I’m really offended.
Jen: You should definitely say something to him – don’t let your boss walk all over you.
Jason: You’re right. I will say something first thing tomorrow.

본문에서 Jason이 제게 “Man! My boss is walking all over me and I’m really offended. “야! 사장님께서 나한테 함부로 대하셔서, 정말 기분이 불쾌해.”라고 합니다. 그러자 저는 “You should definitely say something to him – don’t let your boss walk all over you. 사장님께 뭐라고 잘 말씀 드려봐. 함부로 대하시도록 두지 말고.”라고 충고합니다. 그러자 Jason도 “You’re right. I will say something first thing tomorrow. 맞아. 내일 아침에 가장 먼저 그 말씀부터 드려야겠다.”라고 합니다.

Now keep today’s expression ‘walk all over somebody’ in mind and let’s hear the conversation again. 그럼 다시 한번 대화를 들어볼까요?

Walk all over somebody
Jason: Man! My boss is walking all over me and I’m really offended.
Jen: You should definitely say something to him – don’t let your boss walk all over you.
Jason: You’re right. I will say something first thing tomorrow.

Today’s expression is walk all over somebody. If you walk all over somebody, you are taking them for granted or treating him them badly. Walk all over somebody를 직역하면 ‘누군가를 밟고 지나가다’. 즉 누군가를 ‘함부로 대하다’, ‘모질게 다루다’, '깔아뭉개다'라는 의미입니다.

In today’s conversation it seems like the Jason’s boss is walking all over him. It simply means that the boss is taking advantage of him and treating him badly. 오늘 본문에서 Jason의 사장님이 Jason에게 함부로 대한 모양입니다. 저는 기분이 상했다는 Jason의 말에, 사장님이 더 이상 그러지 않도록 잘 말해 보라고 충고합니다. 영어로 “You should definitely say something to him – don’t let your boss walk all over you.”라고요.

Now let me give you some example sentences using today’s expression. “Do not walk all over someone. You should always treat them with respect.”는 “누구에게나 함부로 하지 말고, 정중하게 대해야 한다.”라는 뜻입니다. Here is another example sentence. “You shouldn’t let Lisa walk all over you like that.”라고 하면 "Lisa가 너를 그렇게 깔아뭉개도록 놔두면 안 돼.” 로 해석할 수 있습니다. Walk all over somebody, 이 표현 잘 기억하시고요. 오늘의 대화를 마지막으로 들어보겠습니다. Now that you know what today’s expression means, let’s listen to the conversation for the last time.

Jason: Man! My boss is walking all over me and I’m really offended.
Jen: You should definitely say something to him – don’t let your boss walk all over you.
Jason: You’re right. I will say something first thing tomorrow.

Let’s review what we have learned today. If you walk all over somebody, you are treating him or her with disrespect. It can also mean to beat someone very easily in a competition. WALK ALL OVER SOMEBODY. Now try using this expression on your own. 지금까지 ENGLISH WITH YOO에 Jennifer Yoo입니다. Until next time, bye bye!
