Τι θα πει αυτό; Δεν βρίσκω πουθενά ορισμό του. Διάβασα μερικές προτάσεις που χρησιμοποιείται, και μου κάνει κάτι του στυλ «Ούτε γάτα ούτε ζημιά». Τι λέτε;

- Then the suspects go upstairs and rip off Laurel’s jewelry.
- And bail on bikes. That’s a little low rent, don’t you think?
- Yeah. But I’m thinking in a neighborhood like this if you burn rubber outta here, it’s gonna cause a lot of attention. But if you roll quietly away on a bike...
- Yeah, no one’s the wiser. Okay, I get it.

be none the wiser / not be (any) the wiser
1. to fail to understand something Isabel must have explained her idea three times to me, but I'm afraid I'm none the wiser. If you take the label off the jar and say you made it yourself, your guests won't be any the wiser.
2. to not be aware of something The health department gave the restaurant a health warning, but customers were none the wiser.
Usage notes: often said about efforts to be sure that no one is aware: I figured I could just get rid of the stuff, and you'd be none the wiser.
