인생의 묘미는 남들과 공감하는 것이 아닐까. 동병상련의 감정을 느낄 때 자주쓰는 표현이 있는데,
아마 자주 들어봤을 phrase일 것이다.
  • I are in the same boat as you.  너와 같은처지야.
  • We are in the same boat . 우리는 같은 신세지
in the same boat
  • [Definition] to be in the same unpleasant situation as other people
이 phrase를 구지 리뷰하는 이유는 전치사 IN이강조하기위서이다.
가끔씩 on the same boat 라고 쓰는 경우를 봤는데, 그것은 잘못된 표현이다.
구글 ngram으로도 확인할 수 있다.
가장 효과적인 답변은 “관용어라 그냥 그렇다. 그냥 외워…” 일것이다.
구지 이유를 원한다면,  boat는 크기가 작고, 안에 들어가는 것이기 때문이다.
Yacht (요트) 같은 경우에는 그 크기가 크고, 탑승하기위해서는 올라타는 것이라 on the yacht라고 하는 것이 맞다.
Bus도 이와 마찬가지로, 크기가 크고, 탑승하기위해서는  올라타는 것이라 on the bus라고 한다
하지만 boat나 elevator처럼 크기가 작고, 올라타는 느낌이 아니라면 in the XXX가 맞다.
