Please imagine a person who is usually unlucky! The peron faces another unlucky situation and wants to criticize it and make a pejorative remark about his luck and relate his belief about the lack of his chance since old times ago! We have a proverb here which figuratively says:
Literal translation: My donkey didn't have any tail since it was a foal!
Connotation: As far as I can remember, I've always been unlucky!
I have found the following saying which I have no any idea whether etymologically it has something to do with the concept in my question or not:
- I have no pretention to begin with!
I would appreciate it if you help me to find the closest proverb/expression/idiom to describe this concept in English.
