Translation of "in the same breath" - English-Mandarin Chinese dictionary

in the same breath

If you say two things in the same breath, you say two things that are so different that if one is true, the other must be false

同时,紧接着(指同时说出两件相抵触的事)
You say you're bored and frustrated but in the same breath say you're resigned to staying in the same job. 你一会儿说你对工作感到厌烦,无成就感,可一会儿又说你安于继续做这份工作。
