1. Almost there 快到了

Almost即係差啲嘅意思,there解「嗰到」,
所以當你啱啱出門口,仲要差唔多半個鐘先會到,
就可以先講“I’m almost there”,點都好過你話「我啱啱先出門口呀!」

例子:
A:“Hey. where are you? I’ve been waiting for fifteen minutes already.”
B:“Sorry, got held up in a traffic jam. I’m almost there!”

2. A couple blocks away 再兩個路口就到了

A couple解「一啲」或者「幾個」,block即係街區,成句就解「仲爭一兩條街先會到」。

例子:
A:“Mom, I’m getting late for first period.”
B:“Don’t worry, honey. We’re only a couple blocks away.”

3. Will be there any minute 馬上就到了

Any minute係隨時或者即將嘅意思,所以當你講“Will be there any minute”,代表你隨時即刻就會到目的地。

例子:
A:“Crown, please don’t tell me you just woke up.”
B:“No, I’m already on my way. I’ll be there any minute.”

4. Will be there in a bit 等下就到了

Bit解「一啲啲」,成句就解「再要多啲啲時間就會到」,而bit又可以用moment或者second取代,意思一樣!

例子:
A:“Crown, boss is looking for you in the office.”
B:“Got it! I’ll be there in a bit.”

5. Just a sec 再一下就到了

Sec係second嘅簡寫,成句解「過多一秒我就到啦!」當然呢個係誇張法啦,不過就代表「好快好快就到」,give me a sec都係一樣意思。

例子:
A:“Sorry I kept you waiting. I’ll be just a sec.”
B:“You’re already fired.”

不過,遲到係返工嘅大忌,職場遲到係無藉口嫁,
唔想比壞印象老細,就記得準時起身返工啦!
