that’s a given



As we are trying to pinpoint the cause of the flight delay today, we know that the pilot had slept in and arrived late to the airport. That’s a given. 当我们正在查明今天这航班晚点的原因,我们知道飞机师睡过头,这一点是肯定的。

You have been misbehaving lately. We need to figure out what to do about it. But you are not going to the movies this weekend, and that’s a given. 你最近的行为不检,我们要想想如何处理。但这周末不允许你去看电影,这个是确定的。
