Feifei
大家好!欢迎收听 BBC英语教学的 “地道英语” 节目。我是冯菲菲。

Roy
…and me, Roy!

Feifei
我们可能听起来与以往有些不同,这是因为在新冠肺炎疫情爆发期间,我们无法在平时的录音间录制节目。

在这期节目中,我们要教给大家的这个词语可以用来形容某人因为一件小事而心烦意乱。Speaking of which, you got really upset when the vending machine didn’t have any of those sweets you like this morning!

Roy
I really like those ‘unicorn truffles’ – you have no idea how good they are. It ruined my day!

Feifei
Everyone likes ‘unicorn truffles’, but there’s no need to get overly upset about it – they’re just sweets! You were so salty this morning!

Roy
What do you mean salty? You mean I was sweaty? Aw, I sweat when I get stressed.

Feifei
No, Roy. That’s not what I meant.“Salty” 的意思是某人因为不值得一提的小事而恼羞成怒。Roy 不应该因为自动售货机里没有他喜欢吃的糖而那么生气。
If you’re that desperate for the sweets, you should go to the supermarket before work like I did.

Roy
Wait, you’ve got some ‘unicorn truffles’? Can I have one, please?

Feifei
You can have one, and only one. Anyway, let’s listen to these examples.

Examples
She was so salty when she lost the board game. It’s really not that important.

He was so salty yesterday when nobody wanted to go to lunch with him.

I’m sorry – it was a bad joke, but there’s no need to get salty about it!

Feifei
你正在收听的是 BBC英语教学的 “地道英语”。在这期节目里,我们教给大家单词 “salty” 在现代英语中的新用法。“Salty” 作形容词的时候除了可以表达 “食物的味道是咸的”,现在,它还被人们用来形容某人因为不值得一提的小事而不高兴、生气,甚至恼羞成怒。Now, Roy, you’re salty because I won’t give you more sweets!

Roy
Feifei, you have a bag full of ‘unicorn truffles’! You could open a sweet shop you have that many! So, I’m not being salty. I don’t think it’s unreasonable to be upset that you won’t give me one more sweet!

Feifei
Fine, but only because I’m a nice person! Talking about being salty, did you see Rob this morning?

Roy
Yes! Why was he so angry? I saw him hitting the keyboard! He was so angry with you, Feifei.

Feifei
Ha, that’s because I unplugged his computer! He couldn’t turn it on! So, when I told him that I’d done it as a joke, he got really salty.

Roy
Haha! You’re the best, Feifei! You love playing practical jokes on people. Well, I need to go back to my desk. Wait! I can’t move! I’m stuck to the chair!

Feifei
Yes! I know. I put lots of superglue on your chair before you sat down! Don’t get salty about it! Here, have a couple of ‘unicorn truffles’ to cheer you up!

Roy
Thanks, Feifei, but I really need to go back to work. Can you get me off this chair, please?

Feifei
Bye, Roy.

Roy
Bye.
