Hi this is Tutor Nick P and this is Idioms 271. The idiom today is on the
receiving end. Okay. Let's take a look the note here. If someone is at or on the
receiving end ... so you could say it both ways. You say somebody's at the receiving end
or somebody's on the receiving end. He or she is the person who gets or receives
something. Literally, like you could be receiving a package or you could be
receiving a phone call. You're on the receiving end. Okay, Or in a way in which
something negative or harmful is directed. So you could be on the
receiving end of something negative or harmful. All right. Let's continue here.
The first one is you know , literally to do with shipping something. So you could say
that shipment was reported to have cleared customs or got through customs
in perfect condition. So the damage must have occurred on the receiving end. So
somewhere from clearing customs before getting to the customer, the damage must
have occurred at that point . Because then clearing through customs it was reported
to be in perfect condition. So it must have happened on the receiving end. Okay.
Because in this case, we could also say like the shipping end, meaning the other
side too. All right. Let's look at number two here.
though. I work in the customer service department, so I am often on the
receiving end of many customer complaints. So the customers, they have to
complain to somebody. Unfortunately that's your job. You're on the receiving
end. You're the person who's receiving their complaints, and you know you have
to respond to them. So you're on the receiving end. So again definitely
something negative or kind of harmful. And number three here. The boss is in a
bad mood today. Be careful what you say to him. You don't want to be on the
receiving end of his anger. All right. So again , so in case he gets angry,
he might blow up and you know direct his anger at you. So be careful what you say
to him. You don't want to be on the receiving end of that. Okay. Anyway I hope
you got it. I hope it was clear. Thank you for your time. Bye-bye.
