這個片語的意思不太好猜

do a number on someone「在某人身上做一個數字」?

它的由來是 1960 年代晚期的黑人英語

本來的意思是在你身上做標記,讓你不能去做某事

現在的意思則是去傷害某人

不過如果它的後面接的是東西的話可能就是「便溺」的意思了

比如:My cat did a number on the floor.

就是「我的貓在地板上尿尿/大便了」


我們來造些句:

She really did a number on you, didn’t she?
(她真的傷了你,不是嗎?)

Sam did a number on her when they broke up.
(山姆在分手時狠狠的傷了她。)

The press did a number on the senator.
(媒體狠狠的傷了那位參議員。)
