Hi,

What does the phrase "stuck in reverse" mean? Can somebody be stuck in reverse?

If a car is stuck in reverse, it means you can't get it out of that gear. It will only go backwards.

I suppose you could say this figuratively, eg 'In my English class, I am stuck in reverse', meaning that you can't stop forgetting everything you have learned.

However, I'd have to think for a moment and consider the context before I could understand your meaning.

Best wishes, Clive

When you love someone, but it goes to waste
