  • I disposed of my TV as it was a pointless distraction and there was nothing worth watching

  • I habitually left the TV on and the shows were rubbish so I ditched it

To ditch something = to get rid of something or throw it away. To dispose of something = to remove something - you may sell it, burn it, take it to the rubbish dumo, give it to a neighbouror break it into small pieces. Rubbish! = we use this disparaging word as a noun or adjective when talking about something which annoys us, is unsatisfactory or of poor quality. "The rock show in the city park last night was absolute rubbish!"
To ditch something = 何かを処分すること、捨てること To dispose of something = 売却、焼却、ごみ処理場で処分、人に譲る、細かくくずすなどして処分すること Rubbish = 自分をイラつかせたり、満足しなかったり、品質が悪いものにたいしてけなす言葉。名詞、形容詞として使う。 "The rock show in the city park last night was absolute rubbish!" シティーパークのロックコンサートは本当にくだらなかった。

  • Although there was nothing interesting on TV I would end up watching something that didn't interest me. So I got rid of it.

  • I got rid of my TV because I found myself watching TV even though I wasn't interested in what I was watching.

The two sentences you see provided above are excellent ways to express to your listener the reason why you decided to get rid of your TV. In the first sentence you will notice the term end up. This means to eventually get somewhere or do something. This term is appropriate for informal settings and it would make a great addition to your vocabulary.
上記どちらの文でも、あなたがテレビを処分した理由を伝えることができます。 一つ目の文には'end up'という表現があります。これは「最後に~に行き着く、結局~になる」という意味です。この表現はインフォーマルな場面に適しています。ぜひボキャブラリーに加えておいてください。

  • The TV programmes were not giving me any enjoyment so I got rid of my TV.

    play icon

  • The shows on TV were extremely boring and a waste of time that I decided to dispose of my TV.

  • Because of the boring TV programmes, I thought they were just an obstruction and I disposed of the TV.

If something is not giving you any 'enjoyment', it means that thing does not give you any pleasure in either using it or consuming it. In this case, the TV programmes were not giving you any enjoyment. 'Enjoyment' is a noun. Something that is 'boring' is not interesting and can definitely be a waste of time. In this case, the TV shows were not interesting, thereby wasting your time. 'Boring' is an adjective in this case. The noun 'obstruction' means something that hinders or gets in the way of something else. In this case, the boring TV programmes were getting in the way of something else more important that you could have been doing. So, you may say: The TV programmes were not giving me any enjoyment so I got rid of my TV. or The shows on TV were extremely boring and a waste of time that I decided to dispose of my TV. or Because of the boring TV programmes, I thought they were just an obstruction and I disposed of the TV.
もし何かがあなたに''enjoyment'を何も与えないのであれば、それはあなたがそれを使っていたり消費したりしていても何の喜びも得られないということを意味しています。 この場合、テレビはあなたに何の楽しみも与えていないということになります。 'Enjoyment' は名詞です。 何かが'boring'であるということはそれが面白くなく、完全に時間の無駄であるということを意味しています。 この場合、テレビ番組は面白くなく、したがってあなたの時間を無駄にしているということになります。 'Boring'はこの場合形容詞です。 名詞'obstruction'は、何かが何かの妨害をするということを意味しています。 この場合、つまらないテレビ番組があなたがすることができたはずのより重要な何かを邪魔しているということになります。 以下のようにいうことができます。: The TV programmes were not giving me any enjoyment so I got rid of my TV. または The shows on TV were extremely boring and a waste of time that I decided to dispose of my TV. または Because of the boring TV programmes, I thought they were just an obstruction and I disposed of the TV.
