German term or phrase: Zur falschen Zeit am falschen Ort im falschen Job?
Two men in a picture, sharing an office space. One is very large, the other very small. Hope it's not offensive! I got it in an e-mail entitled "Quit complaining about your job". Thanks a bunch :o)

Actually your sentence says, \"At the wrong time in the wrong place in the wrong job\" but in English we tend to reverse the order of adverbs.
