"Read 'em and weep" nghĩa là gì?

'Read 'em and weep' = read it and weep = đọc và khóc đi -> nghĩa là nghe/biết tin dữ/tin xấu; (trong chơi bài bạc) nhìn kết quả và mếu đi, mày thua/tao thắng rồi.

Ví dụ
Read it and weep — a nurse's memoir about life in the NHS.

Statistics can be massaged and misleading, but there’s no debating the enormity of the Colts’ proclivity (tuyên bố) for making things much harder than they need to be. In the influential takeaway-giveaway category, read ‘em and weep: the Colts are a minus-3 in turnovers (10 takeaways, 13 giveaways), and a league-worst and staggering minus-34 differential in points scored off turnovers.

Want to know what Mark Zuckerberg and his underlings really think about us users? Get ready to read ’em and weep: against the wishes of the Facebook CEO, the UK parliament’s inquiry into fake news has published confidential (tối mật) correspondence (văn thư, trao đổi) between Zuck and his staff. That correspondence has some revealing stuff in it.

You don’t need to be obnoxious (đáng ghét, khả ố) but you need to be prepared to talk about your business. As Brittany Hearst, author of the best-selling book “Influencer” and a mega-influencer in her own right said: “If you're not telling your own story, someone else will tell it for you.” So, it’s entirely up to you — control the dialog or read it and weep.
