What does the following sentence mean?
=> There goes the phone, again
What is the situation?
It probably means, "The phone keeps ringing!" or "The phone is ringing again!" . The speaker is either annoyed that the phone is ringing so much, or is simply surprised that it is ringing so much.
"There goes the ____!" can be used in 2 ways:
1) whenever something happens over and over again.
*dog is always making noise* "There goes that dog again!"
"There you go again, always blaming me!"
2) If something unexpectedly breaks or behaves strangely.
*Lightbulb breaks* "Oops, there go the lights."
*A plan does not go well* "Well, there goes my plan!"
It's a very strange expression, and is actually hard to explain. If you give me an example, or have any questions, I'd be glad to try again!
