Isn't this convenient? As you can see from the title, I wonder about the nuance of that sentence. The situation is a man who eating lunch in restaurant, called his friend who is driving, and said "I left my wallet at home, so please come and bail me out". So his friend who is driving a car, says "Oh, isn't this convenient?" If you know this please help me. And I want some other examples. thank you

lsn't this convenient? = It's absolutely convenient!= I'll go pay for you and bail you out! But these could also have been said ironically.

It is ironic. It also to be honest doesn't sound quite natural.

The friend knows he just wants him to pay for his food so he does not have to spend his own money. If a guy likes a girl, he may conveniently need to use the bathroom when he is dropping her off home. Meaning, he is using an excuse to come in her house for example.

I want to know some kind of situations that sentence used.
