洁癖

(jiépǐ)

A: My cousin broke up with her boyfriend yesterday. I heard that it was because she is a serious neat freak. 

我表姐昨天和她男朋友分手了, 听说主要还是因为她有严重的洁癖。

(wǒ biǎojiě zuótiān hé tā nánpénɡyǒu fēnshǒu le, tīnɡshuō zhǔyào háishì yīnwèi tā yǒu yánzhònɡ de jiépǐ.)

B: I once lived in the same dorm as her once. She cleaned up several times every day. It really made it difficult for the other people in the dorm to study in peace.  

我曾经跟她同一个宿舍, 她每天都要打扫好几遍卫生, 这让其他人无法在宿舍安心学习。

(wǒ cénɡjīnɡ ɡēn tā tónɡ yīɡè sùshè, tā měitiān dōuyào dǎsǎo hǎojǐbiàn wèishēnɡ, zhè rànɡ qítārén wúfǎ zài sùshè ānxīn xuéxí.)

A: There are limits to everything. It's good to be clean, but if your personal habits impact the lives of others then that is a problem.   

任何事情都有个度。讲卫生当然是好的, 可如果个人习惯干扰到别人的生活, 那就有问题了。

(rènhé shìqínɡ dōuyǒu ɡè dù. jiǎnɡwèishēnɡ dānɡrán shì hǎode, kě rúɡuǒ ɡèrén xíɡuàn ɡànrǎo dào biérén de shēnɡhuó, nà jiù yǒuwèntí le.)
