Catch sb off guard:to surprise someone, esp. in a way that makes the person feel confused or uncertain. (猝不及防被抓、一不小心被逮住、猎手不及)

英语习语俚语:"Catch sb off guard"使用场景:

This phrase may be applied to positive, negative, and neutral situations. If a man sends a dozen roses to his wife while she is at work for no apparent reason, this will likely catch her off guard. Equally, the news that someone’s close friend has been involved in a car accident might catch him off guard.

A woman’s coworker might catch her off guard by accidentally sending her an email in which he talks badly about another employee. Although the email has been wrongly addressed to her and has nothing to do with her, it will still catch her off guard because she was not expecting it.
