Hello, what's this sentence mean? It's phone conversation between two men...
'I could almost hear the changing of gears.'
Ok, he's talking with a police. Is this clear now or should I tell more about the part?
“Maybe I got time off for good behaviour. Anyway, I was luckier than her, wasn’t I?” I enjoyed the pause that followed. I could almost hear the changing of gears.
“Oh, yeah. Sorry about that. We had to see how much you knew, or remembered.'
So can I translate the meaning as 'I can feel that he'll act different' or 'I can see that he'll change his attitude' ? Did I understand you right? I'm not native speaker so trying translating a text to Turkish. If I have the right meaning it'll be ok for me.
Thank you very much :)
