Translation of "in the same breath" - English-Traditional 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

同時,緊接著(指同時説出兩件相抵觸的事)
You say you're bored and frustrated but in the same breath say you're resigned to staying in the same job. 你一會兒説你對工作感到厭煩,無成就感,可一會兒又説你安於繼續做這份工作。
