"Sail in the same boat" nghĩa là gì?

'Sail in the same boat' nghĩa là hành động chung, cùng hành động.

Ví dụ
Condemning government (lên án chính phủ) while sailing in the same boat reeks of hypocrisy (đạo đức giả). It would be unacceptable and sad, if the allegations are true that funds were abused (lạm dụng), misappropriated (lấy tiền một cách sai trái để sử dụng cho mình; biển thủ) or diverted (làm trệch hướng, thay đổi mục đích).

For the first three years, whenever Ouma gave blood for a VLT, he had to wait for one month before he could get his results. And sailing in the same boat were the more than one million HIV positive (dương tính) patients across the country.

This emotional delusion (ảo tưởng cảm xúc) created by media (truyền thông) is not the real cause (nguyên nhân thực sự) of this suicide (tự tử). More important is the fact that this young man saw such a little value in his existence that he could sacrifice it for such a trivial reason. It is this phenomenon that needs our serious attention, especially because most of us average people are sailing in the same boat.

'Be in the same boat' = cùng trên một chiếc thuyền -> nghĩa là cùng trong tình huống éo le giống ai đó (be in the same unfortunate circumstances as others); cùng cảnh ngộ.

Ví dụ
I know a few other schools are waiting for the first four games, so I wouldn't be surprised if they're in the same boat.

A fan responded to Teigen’s video with a link to Medolac — a place to buy donated breast milk — which is a fantastic option for moms in the same boat as Teigen.

This means that we have to work harder together, adding “We are in the same boat, so let’s make sure we row in the same direction and remain the market leaders.”

The Prince George Chamber of Commerce is in the same boat as many others when it comes to their feelings on the NDP government’s first year in office. It’s been a rocky relationship, to say the least between the two after a CFIB Report Card this morning issued a “D” grade due to a number of policies impacting the sector. One of which is the Employer Health Tax set to take effect on January 1st.
