" As we got out of the taxi, Sonia said, "Our sitting behind made him feel like he was employed by us; on top of that, he couldn't understand what we were saying. So naturally, he wasn't very happy. I wouldn't put it past him to try to trick us. But I'd rather believe he was really was just kidding. Anyway, he wasn't too pleased with both of us sitting in the back."

下车后索妮娅说,“我们坐在后面,他有受雇于人之感,再加上听不懂我们的话,心中自然不痛快,想个招儿讹一下也未尝不可能,不过我还是相信他开玩笑的可能性大。不管怎么说,我俩都坐后面,他是不太高兴的。”

Re: " I wouldn't put it past him 什么意思?"

"I wouldn't put it past him to try to trick us." = " I wouldn't be surprised if he tries to trick us"

e.g.
He is a very lazy person and I wouldn't put it past past him to come up with an excuse to stay away from cleaning the school yard.= He is a very lazy person and I wouldn't BE SURPRISED IF HE TRIES to come up with an excuse to stay away from cleaning the school yard.
