穿小鞋

chuān xiǎoxié

make things hard for sb.

释义 Meaning

原来的意思指故意把鞋的尺寸弄小,让别人穿着不舒服,甚至穿不上。后来,这一词语就用来专指在背后使坏点子使人处于困境,或利用某种职权故意为难某人,一般指上级对下级。用法上,可以说“给××穿小鞋”。贬义词。

The original meaning of“穿小鞋(chuān xiǎoxié)” is that someone deliberately makes the shoes smaller for others to make them uncomfortable, even too small to wear. Afterwards people extended the meaning. It chiefly refers to retaliate someone secretly by using scheme or official power, to give him/her a hard time. It generally happens on what the superior does to inferior. We can say “给(gěi)××穿小鞋(chuān xiǎoxié)”. Derogatory.
