Today’s Word: rash

March 16, 2017 =========

☆  rash  無謀な


If someone is rash or does rash things, they act without thinking carefully first, and therefore make mistakes or behave foolishly. This week’s useful phrase is “You shouldn’t really be so rash.” You could use this to talk to a child or teenager that you feel is acting impulsively without thinking. You could also say something like that to a coworker or subordinate if you felt that they were making hasty decisions without considering the consequences.

If you wanted to give advice to someone who is in a bad situation and feeling very emotional, you could say something like this, “Don’t do anything rash until you have thought about it properly.” Or “Don’t do anything rash until you are feeling calmer.”
