I came across an obstacle.
From the dictionary, "come across stn/sb" means to discover something by chance, or to meet someone by chance. If I intend to say I meet an obstacle (unexpectedly) rather than I discover an obstacle, does the sentence above possess my intention as well?
Thank you in advance!
Yes, "came across" is consistent with an unexpected meeting/discovery. :wink:Originally Posted by bread
