7月25日号 これって英語で何て言う?

音声を聞いてみよう

 東京在住の日米夫婦・健一とレイチェルが主人公。「これ英語で何て言うのかな?」を考えます。

    駄目で元々である have/get nothing to lose   

    Rachel: (Comes out of the bedroom) Good morning. I'm so tired.

    Kenichi: Good morning. What time did you work until yesterday?

    Rachel: What time did I get home from the office?

    Kenichi: It was right when I was getting into bed, so around 11.

    Rachel: I did some work for another two hours or so after that.

    Kenichi: You've been working really hard recently.

    Rachel: Yeah. I've had to take on extra responsibilities because of the recent departure of one of our colleagues. Remember, there was a guy who was alleged to have stolen money from the company?

    Kenichi: Yeah. He quit?

    Rachel: It's more like he was forced to resign, I would say.

    Kenichi: So that's why you've been so busy.

    Rachel: Unfortunately.

    Kenichi: Is your employer going to hire someone new?

    Rachel: They're planning to, but we don't know when that'll be.

    Kenichi: Maybe you should ask for a raise.

    Rachel: It hadn't occurred to me to do that. But I am doing a lot of work, and I should be compensated for that. Plus, I have nothing to lose from asking for more money, right? The worst that could happen is that they could say "no." I think I will negotiate for a raise.
