Rub something in one’s face:a. It means to inform someone or remind someone that you are superior to him or more fortunate than him in a way that is excessive to the point of rudeness. That is, you are not just pointing out your advantage, but emphasizing it in a way calculated to embarass the other person or build yourself up. { 反复讲别人不愿听的事、 在别人面前不停炫耀(某种优势或强项)};b. to keep reminding somebody of what they have done wrong.  (唠叨他人的不对)

中文释义:首先我们来看下“Rub”这个词的英文定义:To move (one thing) back and forth (aginst another); 翻译成中文:将一样东西来回不停地对着另一物件移动,所以就有了摩擦的意思,那么针对的不是物件,而是人呢?那就是在某个人面前来回不停地移动某件东西,可想而知:就是炫耀了。
