如果你对某人说 bear with me 你的意思是要对方耐心点儿或耐心等一等。
- Please bear with me while I make this phone call. I‘ll be with you shortly.
- I went to the hospital and the queue was very long. They asked me to bear with them as there was an epidemic.
值得注意的是，如果形容一个人是在 bearing up 那就表示这个人在困难面前显出勇气。
- Emma was bearing up but everybody knew how much she misses her mother, who died last month.
