You don’t know the half of it. 就是字面上的意思

「你連一半的事都不知道」/「你知道的還不及一半」

意思是情況比對方想的還嚴重, 還要複雜

比如:

You think the restaurant is not doing well, but you don’t know the half of it. The owner is actually in a lot of debt.
(你認為這家餐廳生意不好, 可是你只說對了一半。它的老板事實上欠了很多債。)

A: Jerry seems preoccupied today.
B: You don’t know the half of it. His dad is in the hospital, and he just lost his job.
(A: 傑瑞今天似乎有點心不在焉。
B: 不止如此。他爸爸住院了, 他又剛丟了工作。)

A: The country’s economy is declining.
B: You don’t know the half of it. On top of that, there is a lot corruption going on, and they’re facing constant threats from neighboring countries.
(A: 這個國家的經濟正在衰退。
B: 不只如此, 還有很多貪污事件, 而且常遭受鄰近國家的威脅。)
