CH：Hi Amy, how are you?
C："A bone to pick with me?" 这是什么意思啊？
A：We will have to continue this later. I have a meeting in five minutes.
A：Chen Hao, ---7---.
As a matter of fact there is. I consider you a good friend as well as colleague. You know I have tried to help you as much as I can since you came to work at ABC Unfortunately we have a problem right now. As we say in America, "I have a bone to pick with you" It means that I have a complaint about something that involves you Forgive me - I may be wrong, but I think you used my office while I was away last week I would not have minded if you had asked me first I understand, but you need to be aware that you shouldn't make yourself at home in someone else's office without first asking permission you deserve to know what bothered me about your using my office without asking me first. You were not very considerate in some of the things you did It appears that you ate your lunch in my office There were crumbs all over my desk And how do you explain the missing paper clips? I was down to my last few, and when I came back, there weren't any left And that means that you went through my desk to find them Well, it's not. Even with good friends. Just because people are not at their desk, doesn't mean that you can make your self at home when they are not there I accept your apology. In the future remember to ask permission before you use a coworker's desk, office equipment or supplies. When you do receive permission, leave everything as you found it
