“Rub it in” means to rub a liquid onto a surface until it is absorbed. But we often use this phrase to mean drawing attention to someone’s failure.


“You failed the math test?”


“After you studied all night? Your sister got 100% without even studying.”

“You don’t have to rub it in.”




「Rub it in」とは、表面に液体が吸収するまでマッサージするように塗ることです。でも、人の失敗に注目を浴びせるようなことを言う時に度々このフレーズが使われます。。
