這個片語是很口語的用法, 而且意思不好猜

它當然不是什麼 說話店”, 也不是聊天室 (chat room)

talk shop 其實是 talk about business 的意思, 也就是 談公事

比如: Let’s enjoy the party tonight and not talk shop.

Ellen can’t stop talking shop, even at her own birthday party.

這個片語也可以把兩個字反過來, 變成名詞 shop talk 來用

意思就是 關於公事的談話

比如有時跟同事出去玩或出席宴會場合

同事想一直講關於上班的事情

我們就可以說: No shop talk tonight, OK?
