English term or phrase:or put a bad taste in someone’s mouth
Hiring the right people can be just as important as the builder’s pedigree in retaining a yacht’s value. "Often, captain and crew are charged with maintaining the yacht and that will have a direct impact on depreciation and resale value," says Bruce Schattenburg, managing director of the Sacks Group, a Fort Lauderdale brokerage and charter firm. "But beyond that, a good crew can make yachting a wonderful experience or put a bad taste in someone’s mouth."
Explanation: leave a bad taste in your mouth = if an experience leaves a bad taste in your mouth, you have an unpleasant memory of it. eg I think we all felt he had been treated very unfairly and it left a bad taste in our mouths.
