內文 :
A: Have you talked to Mr. Lambert about Ian's obscene speech towards you?
你跟 Lambert 先生提過 Ian 對你講的猥褻的話嗎?

 

B: Yes, but he brushed it off as if it were not a big deal to him.
有,但他輕輕帶過(不理),好象他覺得那並沒有什麼。

 


 

"brush away(aside)" 也是「不理」的意思。如"He brushed aside our objection."(他無視我們的反對)。

 

注: 類似的說法還有, this is a serious mistake. you shouldn't just shrug it off like that.
