blind eye … στραβά μάτια;


…κάνω τα στραβά μάτια / …turn a blind eye (to)

…κάνω ότι δεν καταλαβαίνω κάτι… / προσποιούμαι ότι δε βλέπω κάποια πράγματα (να συμβαίνουν) που δε θα έπρεπε να συμβαίνουν… / εθελοτυφλώ…

Παραδείγματα:

  • I turned a blind eye to her bad behavior.
  • Unfortunately bar, restaurant and cafeteria managers turn a blind eye to their patrons (customers) smoking inside their premises (shops) despite the existing smoking ban.

  • If you, from time to time, turn a blind eye we’ll get on fine.
