Smell a Rat

How come the front door is open? Didn't you close it before we went shopping?

I'm sure I did. I can't understand it.

Frankly, I smell a rat.

Me, too. I'm convinced that something is definitely wrong here.

We'd better call the police.

 

Smell a Rat = (feel that something is wrong)

觉得事有蹊跷=(觉得什么是错的)

怎么来的前门打开?你没有关闭它之前,我们一起去购物吗?
我敢肯定,我did.i无法理解它。
坦率地说,我觉得事有蹊跷。
我相信,too.i的财产以后肯定是错误的,在这里。
我们最好打电话报了警。

"Rat" is also  a student; esp. a freshman or new student."Of all the cadets, the "rats" of the entering class have the roughest time." Virginia Military Institute use.

In Brazil, the freshmen of any Military Academy are called "bichos", or "animals"(=animals); not "rats".

My dear. I'm not a teacher at EBaby. This idiom was posted by someone else.

I asked to be a teacher too, but they refused me.

So, let's continue to be pupils.

Knowledge is made up by the curiosity of pupils, not teatchers'...
