如果一件事对某人来说是one in the eye,意思就是此人对事情的结果感到无比失望或受到了严重打击,不过你却对这样的结果感到高兴。

  • I got the job! That's one in the eye for John - I've never liked him and I was sure he would get the position. Ha!
  • Our winning the championship was one in the eye for our rival team - they are always boasting about their skills.

值得注意的是,短语see eye to eye的意思是看法、意见完全一致。

  • I like my new boss: we see eye to eye on how to run the department.
