what does it mean when someone says I spoke too soon
For example, Im watching a Boxing match, and the guy on the Left has a solid defense and I say "He's never going to get hit, his defense is too good" And then the guy on the RIght knocks him out. at that point I'd say I spoke to soon, because I Literally spoke to soon before seeing the outcome of the fight.
does this make sense?
'I spoke too soon' simply means that the person said something which later events showed was incorrect.
They said "this" would happen, but they found out that it already happened.
