One day at lunch, Helen said to her colleagues, "Yesterday was my birthday. I received a lot of presents from my family and friends. Among the presents, I like the pearl necklace that my boyfriend Eric bought for me. It's very beautiful. I think he must have broken the bank to buy it for me." "Woo, is he fine now?" Sally, a girl from South Korea, asked. "Sure, he is very fine now." "Was he found by police in the bank?" Sally asked again. "No, how do you know he went to bank? And why do you ask whether he was found by police?" Helen asked.
"Because you said that your boyfriend broke the bank to buy the necklace for you. So when he was breaking the bank, it's very dangerous and easy to be found by police." Sally replied.
"No, I think you misunderstand the meaning of BREAKING THE BANK. It doesn't mean that someone robs of the bank. It means that someone spends all of his money on something." Nancy said.
"Oh, I'm really sorry, Helen."
