You do not find it when you need it!


Senior Member

I was looking for an expression in English so I asked for it on WR but later on it I remembered it. However, it was not needed as much.

Is there an expression in English that is used in this situation. For example something along the lines of: You do not find it when you need it!

    It depends on the circumstances:

    A: "What the word for a group of cows?... You know... when there are a lot of cows all together..."
    B: "Oh... Yes, there is a word... it's... er... it's... Damn! It is on the tip of my tongue and I can't remember it!"
