“My wife loves garlic, but I can’t stand it.”

If you really don’t like something and can’t tolerate being around it, you can’t stand it. You can also use this phrase when you’re in an intolerable situation. “I walked out onto the stage, and everyone was looking at me. I just couldn’t stand it, so I rushed through my lines and ran off the stage.”


耐えられないほどきらいのものは「can’t stand」と言います。耐えられない状況にも使います。「舞台に出たら、皆が私を見ていた。耐えられなくて、台詞を早口で言って舞台から逃げた。」
