“见好就收”这词儿虽然听上去挺颓废的,显得没啥进取心,但在实际生活中却是个实实在在的对策,一步一个脚印儿地向前走,不失为一个明智的举措。

与其相反,“得寸进尺”却成了多数人心中贪婪冒进的火苗儿,还记得范伟小品里的那句著名的“还要啥自行车啊!”说得就是这个理儿。

好啦,今天就来跟大家说一下这个“得寸进尺”用英文怎么来表达,其实挺简单的,就是“push your luck”,你想啊,已经得了好处,还想再碰碰运气,不就是抱着侥幸推着运气走了嘛~

push (one's) luck

na. 得寸进尺; 靠运气成功; 愚蠢冒险;过分依靠自己的好运气;碰到好运后指望侥幸再得到好运; 在已有利情况下做多余冒险;

【En】To try too hard to get a particular result and risk losing what you have achieved. 太过努力去获得一个特定的结果,可能会失去你已经获得的东西。To risk losing the good favor or fortune one has garnered thus far by brashly or overconfidently seeking more. 鲁莽或过分自信地寻求更多的好处,从而冒着失去已有的好名声或财富的危险。
