"Leave a nasty taste in the mouth" nghĩa là gì?

'Leave a bad/nasty taste in the mouth' nghĩa là để lại dư vị cay đắng, để lại ấn tượng không mấy hay ho.

Ví dụ
It leaves a nasty taste in the mouth, and cries are already being voiced that Financial Fair Play rules need to be stricter.

Without a brave campaign by the former head of Conservative party communications Carrie Symonds, who waived her anonymity to reveal that she had been drugged by Worboys, this worrying case might never have achieved the political salience it did. What might have happened if his victims couldn’t bring such pressure to bear? But that’s not the only reason this case leaves a bad taste in the mouth.

The first time you experience an upgrade, or step away from a hostel/cheap hotel, in favour of something more swanky (trưng diện, phô trương, sang, hợp thời trang, huênh hoang, khoe) and take in the difference in service levels it’s hard to walk away. And, as Lamer says, some LCC’s can be very disappointing in this area, leaving customers with a nasty taste in the mouth. Ultimately cash is king but if passengers don’t have to budget I’d suggest a traditional carrier every single time. No matter which rock stars you might get to spy.
