English has many convenient expressions.
These expressions are usually used in speaking.
One expression is: “Welcome to the club!”
This is an informal expression which some
people use when they empathize with
others. That is, this expression means
"I understand your problem because
I have the same problem."
This expression is suggestive of sarcasm.
The expression references a “club” because
the speaker assumes that we should
understand that many people have this
Amy: “My husband is so messy
in the bathroom! Ugh!”
Sally: “Welcome to the club!
My husband always
leaves the bathroom a mess!”
Susan: “Me, too!”
