'Catch sb on the wrong foot' nghĩa là khiến ai bất ngờ, không chuẩn bị (If something catches you on the wrong foot, you are not prepared for it).

Ví dụ
I was involved on the men's side of the collective bargaining agreement for the last one, though I'm not involved in the women's side at all, so you catch me on the wrong foot then.

The tough questions came this time not from firebrand leaders on the opposition benches but from children from various parts of the state who were here to take part in the Children’s parliament. And Chief Minister Siddarmaiah handled them with ease though some questions did catch him on the wrong foot.

Krishna is someone whom you can’t deceive and in case you catch her on the wrong foot you are doomed. If she loves someone, she does so with an open heart and is all passionate. On the other hand, you make yourself her enemy and she won’t think twice about showing the violent and aggressive side of hers.
