While you are on the phone, the baby pulls the tablecloth off the table, smashing half your best crockery and cutting himself in the process.

Things can go wrong on a big scale, as a number of people recently discovered in Parramatta, a suburb of Sydney. During the rush hour one evening two cars collided and both drivers began to argue.

on a big scale 在很大程度上(规模上)

on a small scale 在很小程度上

on a nation wide scale 在全国范围内

on a world wide scale 在世界范围内

in a big range 在很大程度上

 

 

The woman immediately behind the two cars happened to be a learner. She suddenly got into a panic and stopped her car.

This made the driver following her brake hard. His wife was sitting beside him holding a large cake. As she was thrown forward, the cake went right through the windscreen and landed on the road.

Seeing a cake flying through the air, a lorry driver who was drawing up alongside the car, pulled up all of a sudden. The lorry was loaded with empty beer bottles and hundreds of them slid off the back of the vehicle and on to the road.

pulled up 停车

=draw up

pull out of 驶出

=draw out of

pull up all of a sudden 急刹车

=brake hard

=put a brake on

=slam on the brake

=come to the brake

=halt

 

This led to yet another angry argument. Meanwhile, the traffic piled up behind. It took the police nearly an hour to get the traffic on the move again.

on the move 在活动,在运动,在前进

on+the+n. “某种动作正在进行当中”

on the go 忙忙碌碌

on the recovery 正在恢复之中

on the turn 在转变当中

on the march 在前进中

on the air 在播放中

on the rise 正在上升

In the meantime, the lorry driver had to sweep up hundreds of broken bottles. Only two stray dogs benefited from all this confusion, for they greedily devoured what was left of the cake.

benefited from/by 从…收益,得到好处

 

Gist of the text

Troubles never come single.
