Let's say you just met a stranger, and you say:
1.I never would have guessed.
2.I never thought of that.
What is their meaning and difference.
In a movie I am watching at the moment, the main character(after a short introduction amongst themselves) said ''Really? I never would have guessed'' after meeting another stranger.
why did he just said ''Really? I never would have guessed'' instead of ''I never thought of that'' is this cultural or something? Thx.
