    unlucky day

    Which of the following sentences is more suitable to use in the situation that after bad things coming in threes? For example, one day a boy got up later than usual, missed his school bus, called down by his teacher, got a bad grade in his math test, and forgot his door key, etc.


    1. What a terrible day it was!
    2. What an unlucky day it was!
    3. Today was not his day!

    Re: unlucky day

    They all work for me although none of them has any connection to bad things happening in threes. There might have been just one really disastrous event, or loads of them. They could all lead to those exclamations.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
