Examples of happen upon in a Sentence

  1. Fran Lebowitz:

    Girls who put out are tramps. Girls who don't are ladies. This is, however, a rather archaic usage of the word. Should one of you boys happen upon a girl who doesn't put out, do not jump to the conclusion that you have found a lady. What you have probably found is a lesbian.

  2. Matt Wallace:
