    Default Bad timing

    Another common English slang term. "Bad time or timing" means to choose or to do something or for something to occur at an inopportune or inappropriate time or moment.

    "I asked my boss for a raise but it was bad timing because she was angry with me."

    "I picked (chose) a bad time to ask for a raise"

    Are there Spanish slang phrases? e.g...."elegir un momento inapropiado "

    Thanks Walter.

    How would you use it in a sentence?

    "Fue un mal momento... o fue mal momento para pedir ..." ?

    o

    "Elegí un mal momento...." ?
