irresponsible/ 不负责任/ (bùfù zérèn)

A: Did you see that short online video on Sina Weibo of a father who was busy looking at his phone as he was walking down the road and then his 4-year-old son got run over by a car? 

你看到微博上一位爸爸走路忙着看手机,4岁的儿子被卷入车底的视频了吗?

(nǐ kàndào wēibó shànɡ yīwèi bàbà zǒulù mánɡzhe kànshǒujī, sisuì de érzǐ bèi juànrù chēdǐ de shìpín le ma?)

B: Nope. But he sounds like an irresponsible dad. Can you tell me about it? 

没有,但听起来像个不负责任的爸爸。你能和我讲讲吗?

(méiyǒu, dàn tīnɡqǐlái xiànɡɡè bùfù zérèn de bàbà.nǐnénɡ hé wǒ jiǎnɡjiǎnɡ ma?)

A: A father was walking with his son. He was walking while looking at his phone when his son who was walking in front of him was suddenly run over by a car by accident.

一位爸爸带着儿子散步,边走路边看手机, 走在前面的儿子不慎被一辆突然驶来的汽车撞倒。

(yīwèi bàbà dàizhe érzǐ sànbù, biānzǒulù biānkàn shǒujī, zǒuzài qiánmiànde érzǐ bùshèn bèi yīliànɡ tūrán shǐlái de qìchē zhuànɡdǎo.)

B: What a jerk. What happened to the kid?

真混蛋,那孩子最后怎么样了?

(zhēn hùndàn, nà háizǐ zuìhòu zěnme yànɡ le?)

A: Luckily, the kid wasn't hurt much. The driver has to take full responsibility, but a lot of netizens are accusing the father of being irresponsible.

所幸孩子并无大碍。司机需承担全部责任,但也有很多网友指责父亲不负责任。

(suǒxìnɡ háizǐ bìnɡwú dàài.sījī xū chénɡdān quánbù zérèn, dàn yěyǒu hěnduō wǎnɡyǒu zhǐzé fùqīn bù fùzérèn.)
