English term or phrase: that closet of an office they stuck you in
Keep the Willies at Bay
If you get claustrophobic in small spaces such as subways, elevators, and that closet of an office they stuck you in, visit your local fruit stand. A sniff of green apple may help relieve claustrophobic sensations. Carry one with you. Also, if you're selling your house, placing a basket of fresh green apples on the table may make potential buyers perceive the house as larger.
试译:
心情放松
如果在狭小场所你会有幽闭恐怖症,譬如地铁、电梯或者被人关在办公室小隔间里面(???),就去附近的水果摊转转。闻一闻青苹果,这或许有助于缓解幽闭恐怖症的情绪。回来时带一个。另外,如果你准备卖房子,不妨在桌上摆放一篮新鲜青苹果,这样潜在主顾会觉得房间比较大。
