A double whammy is a set of two negative events or situations that (usually) have an effect at the same time. Look at the following examples:
- Susan suffered a double whammy when her car broke down the same day she lost her dog.
- The world is having to face the double whammy of falling salaries and increasing food prices!
- I got fired from my job, mate. And when I got home I realised I'd lost my wallet. What a double whammy!
