    改成下面這句比較完整:

    The secretary failed to tell the boss about the meeting because he/she has got his/her hands full and he/she totally forgot about it.

    也可以寫成這樣:

    The secretary failed to tell the boss about the meeting because of having got his/her hands full and totally forgetting about it.

    ◎其中 because of 可用以下片語代換:

    as a result of

    on account of

    on the ground of

    in consequence of

    thanks to

    due to

    owing to

    注意:這些片語後面都是接 N/V-ing

    fail to 原V: 失敗,忘記去做某事

    fail in sth :在某方面很失敗

    你可以寫成:

    The secretary failed to remind her boss about the meeting.

    也可以寫成:

    The secretary failed in her job that she should have reminded her boss about the meeting.

    但第一種用法比較自然.

    The secretary failed to tell the boss about the meeting because

    of being too busy and forgetting it totally.

    * Fail(奇摩字典): 失敗;不能;忘記[Y][+to-v] 2. 沒有通過(考試),評定(學生)不及格 3. 使失望;有負於

    * Have one's hands full (by idioms.thefreedictionary.com):過度忙碌

    這句話應該是要表達:秘書因為過度忙碌而忘記告訴老闆有會議。The secretary failed to remind the boss of the meeting because of (being) too busy.
