1. I am not interested. 我没有兴趣.

通常在拒绝别人的时候要注意一下说话的语气。像这句 I am not interested.听来就不太客气。 要使得拒绝别人的话听来客气一点,要在句首加上I am sorry. 这么一来整句话的口气立刻就不一样了。所以礼貌一点的说法应该是 I am sorry. I am not interested. 听来是不是客气很多?

2. I'll think about it. 我要考虑看看。

这句话也是在买东西时候讲的。例如你去百货公司专柜买化妆品,专柜小姐讲了半天、唾沫都干了,你也觉得还不错,但就是太贵,你就可以说:OK, I'll think about it. 就是我再考虑看看的意思。说了这句话你就可以趁机脱身了。

3. I can't afford it. 我付不起。

一样东西太贵你买不起就可以这么说 I can't afford it. 你都讲明没钱了,想必人家不会继续纠缠吧! 但是也有暴强的。有一次我说 I can't afford it. 那个小姐居然说 Do you have credit card? 天啊! 要我借钱买东西,门都没有。我就说No. 没想到她更狠,说他们有自己的信用卡,要不要现场申请一张,可以立刻给我。做生意做成这样也够夸张的了。
