如果有人話你做緊嘅嘢事係「野鵝嘅追遂」(A wild goose chase) ,其實係咩意思?

A wild goose chase係用嚟形容一啲白費力氣嘅追求。

"Although most people thought she was on a wild goose chase pursuing her dream, her effort was not wasted in the end.

"My brother said it's like going on a wild goose chase when he is shopping with my mum."

"To avoid going on a wild goose chase, I suggest that we should think it through before we start working on the project.

A wild goose chase呢句說話嘅起源係嚟自十六世紀嘅英國,當時其實就係用嚟形容賽馬嘅!因為當時賽馬比賽係喺森林入面進行,而規則就係要騎師喺森林入面追住一匹「頭馬」跑。由於「頭馬」性格比較暴烈,跑嘅時候毫無路線規律可言,令到唔少騎師入咗森林之後就蕩失路!而呢種賽馬嘅方式因為有啲似一群雁鳥飛行嘅模式,所以以前嘅人就會用 "A wild goose chase"嚟形容!久而久之,呢句說話就變成比喻一啲徒勞無功嘅追求喇!
