A character gets up in the morning and soon finds something bad has happened- or is about to happen to them. They respond with some variation of: "Sigh... I guess it's going to be one of those days."

This is typically what Deadpan Snarkers will do when normal people would have an Oh Crap moment. In action-orientated series, it will often overlap with Casual Danger Dialog.

May overlap with This Is Gonna Suck. See also Here We Go Again.

Examples of Going to Be One of Those Days include:

Live Action TV



 Lewa: Oh. It's going to be this kind of day.

Video Games


Western Animation

 Dispatcher: (over Police Band) Disturbance reported at the top of the Crown restaurant. Suspect is a male costumed extremist armed with what appears to be a . . . Ketchup gun.

Batman: It's going to be one of those nights.

  • At the end of the Looney Tunes short "Feline Frame-up", Claude Cat has been beaten up everywhichway, and on top of everything, is ran over by a street car. All he can say afterwards is "Just one of those days, I guess."
