"In the wrong place at the wrong time" nghĩa là gì?


"In the wrong place at the wrong time" = sai nơi sai thời điểm -> nghĩa là xuất hiện tại nơi có chuyện xấu xảy ra. Cụm từ này nhấn mạnh vấn đề xảy ra do hoàn cảnh chứ không phải do người đó xuất hiện nên mới xui như vậy.

Ví dụ
Detectives (thám tử) believe he was hit by a stray bullet as he walked home and called him an innocent victim in the wrong place at the wrong time.

On a GoFundMe page for Dubet, however, he is described as an innocent victim (nạn nhân vô tội) who was killed for no reason. The page says he was in the wrong place at the wrong time. In a description of his short life, the page says he changed his first name to Adan at the age of eight and then changed it legally later.

Several days after the passing of the last storm, at least one tree weakened by the heavy rains finally toppled (làm đổ). Unfortunately, it did so and landed on a parked vehicle, also taking out a set of CFE electric lines. The felled tree accident occurred during the afternoon hours along Avenida Náder in Cancun’s city center after the driver just happened to park in the wrong place at the wrong time. The mature tree split, with a large section of it landing on the small car, but not before catching branches in the overhead electric lines.
