Not to me.
- For Teachers
does this make sense "we cannot speak about you all, because we are all in the same boat.
Not to me.
Please be aware that I'm neither a native English speaker nor (at present) a teacher.
It would depend a lot on the context. Without more context, it is hard to see why you are excluding some people, but using the fact that you are all affected as a justification.
For me, it makes sense, and what I understood from that sentence:-
It is too long:-
A group of people made the same mistake, one of them cannot blame the other, as they are all in the sae boat, they made the same mistake, So if you blamed e for something wrong I did, I will blame you too for doing the same of me, so it sounds the same.
Just a thought
Wouldn't this idiom be more commmonly used concerning the complaint of /condition of one individual (within a group) which , by means of the idiom , is then declared stringent for all members of said group ?
He's always complaining that he has to work late , but we're all in the same boat.
Thank you guys.
