What do the bold parts mean? Or rather, I should say that I'm confused by the bold parts, and I'd like to know what the sentences mean, and what kind of flavor they have to them. And what does win away mean?
(1) He ran away on me.
(2) They won several games away on us already.
(3) Today I’m pissed, so I will quit early for the day on him [e.g., my boss].
I suppose bold parts are related to some kind of adversity, because in the same place (pp. 33-34) the following sentences appear:
(a) I (adversely) experienced his running away.
(b) Due to our carelessness we (adversely) experienced their winning several games away from us.
Do (1) and (a) mean the same? And do (2) and (3) mean the same? And still, what kind of flavor do these sentences have?
