What is the fixed expression which can be said by an unlucky person to show their disappointment after a bad outcome / happening in English?
In Russian people have the slang: "ёлки-палки" which is a curse that is normally used when one wishes to express their vexation. I know there are dozens of ways to show you don't like something that is going on like: "Oh my god / gosh / goodness / lord" or simply in a ruder way: "damn", "shit" or "fuck"! But But I am looking for an informal, (not rude) expression which blames the bad luck of the person!
I found the expressions:
in some translation pages, but either I cannot find a reliable source to make sure if they mean what I need or I don't find them similar to my needed expression.
Like Longman says:
(British English) -> used when you feel sympathy about something bad that has happened to someone:
- You didn’t get the job? Oh, tough luck!
I am wondering whether there is an expression you could suggest?
