「和美國人聊天時,千萬別碰這些地雷話題!」- Rude Topics in America


框選或點兩下字幕可以直接查字典喔!

Every country has things they don't like to talk about, questions that are just too emotional for them.
每個國家都有他們不喜歡談的話題、對他們來說太過情緒性的問題。

So today, we join a young couple on their second date. As they try to get to know each other, let's see if we can identify some of these rude topics in America.
所以今天,我們要和一對年輕情侶一起去第二次約會。在他們試著了解彼此的同時,來看看我們能不能分辨出一些在美國不太禮貌的話題吧。

Rude Topics in America
美國的地雷話題

You look nice tonight. So how old are you anyways?
妳今晚看起來很美。所以妳到底幾歲啊?

Let's stop there. In some countries, the older you are, the more respected you are. America doesn't always work like that, though. So, if you ask a person their age, especially a woman, it kinda feels like you're asking, "How much longer will you be useful to me?" So, unless you're with people who are all in the same situation, like at college, and more likely to be the same age, it's probably best not to ask. So, let's see how the couple's doing now.
暫停一下。在有些國家,年齡越大,你就越受尊重。不過美國則不總是那樣。如果你問一個人幾歲,特別是女人,那感覺起來會有點像你在問:「你對我來說還剩多少利用價值?」因此,除非你是和背景相同的人在一起,像是大學同學,和比較有可能同齡的人在一起,不然最好還是不要問。那麼,來看看那對情侶現在怎樣了吧。

Oh, so you're an auto mechanic. So, how much do you make?
喔,所以你是修車技師啊。那你薪水多少?

Money is a sensitive subject in America. We don't wanna seem like we're bragging about how much we have—well, some of us don't. And we don't wanna be asking for help if we don't have enough. So, we really just don't talk about it at all.
錢在美國是一個很敏感的主題。我們不希望看起來像在炫耀自己有多少錢--嗯,我們有些人不想。而且我們不想在錢不夠的時候要別人幫忙。所以,我們真的完全不會討論錢這件事。

Did you see the news about the president? I hate that guy!
你有看到關於總統的那則新聞嗎?我超討厭那傢伙的!

In some countries, politics isn't a big deal; in other countries, it's like a national sport debate. But in America, it's not really either...or both. Here, people's opinions can be really different, and they can be really passionate about it. It's probably best if you get to know your friend and then ask them their opinion. Let's check in with our couple, see how they're doing.
在有些國家,政治不是什麼大事;在其他國家,政治就像全國上下都會聊的話題。不過在美國,政治真的不太是這兩種...或算兩種都是。在這裡,人們的意見可能天差地遠,而且他們可能對政治極度狂熱。如果你先了解你的朋友然後再問他們的看法,那樣或許是最好的。來看看我們那對情侶現在的狀況吧。

So, then she says an angel tells her to buy the Lotto ticket. Can you believe that people still believe in that stuff?
然後她就說有個天使叫她去買樂透。妳能相信現在還有人信那種東西嗎?

Oh, boy! Another bad topic. One of the reasons the first settlers came to America was so that they could worship their god however they wanted to. And to this day, religion and spirituality is still very important to a lot of people in America. So, like politics, asking questions is great. Get to know the person better by asking questions, and then create a dialogue where you can share your own opinion.
天啊!又一個爛話題。第一批移民來到美國的原因之一,就是讓他們能以自己想要的方式信奉他們的神。直到今天,宗教和靈性對許多美國人來說還是十分重要。所以,就像政治一樣,問問題是好的。藉由問問題來更認識一個人,然後開啟一個你能分享自己看法的對話。

Wow, that guy was really rude.
哇,那男的真的很沒禮貌。

Yeah, so was she.
對啊,那女的也是。

Do you think they'll last?
你覺得他們能繼續走下去嗎?

No.
不能。

Nah.
沒辦法。
