Как тебе это удалось?!
В ПЛОХОМ СМЫСЛЕ: возмущение + злость
(мол, как можно было так вляпаться?!)
How did you wind up in such a fix?
How did you come to such a pass?
How did you end up like this? / how did you even get involved?
@Vicious Circle, thanks)
Улий, как-то мы обсуждали, что to manage употребляется, когда вкладывают сарказм в высказывание. А здесь оно не подошло бы?
Конечно! Если у говорящего такое отношение, можно так: How(ever) did you manage to get yourself into such a fix?
@Uly Marrero, thank you very much, it's nice of you!☺ If you don't mind, I'd like to ask you about "to manage". If I got you right... the verb "to manage" is used as a hint of sarcasm? But if I want to say: Мне удалось сдать этот экзамен. I managed to pass this exam. - is there a sarcasm?... Sorry, but "to manage" in the sense of sarcasm - this feature is a bit new to me) Could you explain it, plz?☺ Thanks in advance!
Yes, Gala, if the fact that you passed the exam surprised you because you (a) hate the the class; or (b) didn't study; or (c) are a bad student, etc. then you can say "I somehow managed to pass the exam." But what Tatiana is referring to is when you use it in reference to a bad outcome, as in this example. When somebody fails at something that should be simple or that could have been avoided: A: If you want to go to Rita's party, I can watch your baby. B: No, thanks! Last week I asked you to watch him for one hour and in that time, you managed to drop him on the floor, put his shoes on backwards and make him cry!
@Uly Marrero, so, "to manage" we can use in the both senses - serious and ironical? Okay) I'm very grateful to you for the explanation!👍
Serious and IRONIC, better: sarcastic.
@Uly Marrero, what's the difference between ironical and ironic?☺ Thank you for correcting my mistakes!
They both mean the same thing, but it's not a word we use in modern English: http://www.quickanddirtytips.com/education/grammar/ironic-versus-ironical
@Uly Marrero, thank you, it's really useful!☺
Между прочим, выражение How did you wind up in such a fix? придумали русские колонисты в 1807 году на территории современной Калифорнии.
