I could probably write quite a lot of non-ironies-that-are-just-sucky-situations, pointing out (as has already been done) that the song called Ironic isn’t. I’m going to have to check the lyrics to make sure I’m not repeating any…
- Getting all dressed up just to get drenched by a passing car driving through a puddle.
- Setting off early but being stuck in a traffic jam.
- Having a choice of two things and choosing the one that then doesn’t happen.
- Working all night to come in the next morning to find that someone changed their mind and didn’t tell you.
I think this will get added to over time! You can also choose your own lyric from the aforementioned classic cause it feels a little cheating putting it in myself!
