I've just come across a dialogue between two persons and I was wondering about the grammar behind it.
One of them asks the other to help him and then he explains:
"Everything goes wrong today. Ten minutes ago I lost my car keys and now I can't find my bike."
Is the sentence okay, or is it necessary to say "going wrong today" since the day is still in progress?
Or could I even use "something" instead of "everything" in both types of aspect.
Thanks in advance!
You will want to use 'is going wrong', - as you mention, the day is still in progress and things may still continue to go wrong.
'Everything' is the correct choice here, since there are multiple problems. 'Something' in this context would mean it's just one (as of yet unidentified) issue which is still causing problems.
