hotpotato-300x186Hot potato – too hot to handle

If you describe a problem as a hot potato, you mean it is quite difficult and nobody wants to deal with it.

想像你手上有個很燙的馬鈴薯,這是你該怎麼辦呢? 丟掉也不是,不丟掉又燙手,實在棘手。

在英文俚語裡就是 hot potato ,也就是中文所說的”燙手山芋” 。

(eg)The electronic toll collection (ETC) system has become a hot potato issue.
