comment A phrase like “Good effort!”
In my experience "nice try" is almost always used sarcastically, implying someone is trying to do something nefarious. For example: "Nice try, but we caught you red handed!"

comment What is the term for the unpleasant placement of the chair or sofa - in a way that you can be approached from behind?
I might describe such a sofa or table as being exposed, or being in an exposed location.
