"Rock the boat" nghĩa là gì?

If you 'rock the boat' (khiến thuyền chao đảo), you do or say something that will upset people or cause problems -> nghĩa là nói hoặc làm điều gì khiến người khác phiền lòng hoặc gây rắc rối.

Ví dụ
Sena, which is playing a second fiddle (đóng vai trò thứ yếu) at the Centre and in Maharashtra while sharing power with BJP, also sent a message that the party will not rock the boat and destabilise (gây mất ổn định) the government.

In the face of a man in a position of power abusing that power and thinking he was doing nothing wrong, I kept my head down and I stirred the cocktail in my mixing glass. I didn’t want to rock the boat, either. I was new, and I wanted people to like me.

In extreme cases, Francis said, clergy can display what psychologists call “the dark triad”: narcissism* (tự yêu mình, quá chú ý chăm sóc vẻ đẹp của mình), Machiavellianism and psychopathy (bệnh thái nhân cách). But he also warned that more rigorous (khắt khe, nghiêm ngặt) testing could exacerbate (làm trầm trọng thêm) a trend in the Church of England to recruit conventional clergy who do not rock the boat.

Public sector net borrowing figures out this morning, are unlikely to rock the boat and today could prove to be another day where Sterling is driven largely by external factors (yếu tố ngoại lai). Next week, investors will begin to focus on the next Bank of England meeting in the first week of August, which is shaping up to be a fairly significant risk event for the Pound.

Police say he was arrested without incident for felony non-consensual dissemination of private sexual images.

Martinez posted the topless photograph of his wife on the blog section of his campaign website. Below it was a link to the restraining order from her against him. In the restraining order, she alleges that on July 4 Martinez put his hands around her neck and threw her into a shelving unit.

Martinez is now in Ramsey County Jail. The case remains open and active. St. Paul Mayor Melvin Carter asked him to remove himself from the race.
