Doesn't "expecting the unexpected" make the unexpected expected?

What is meant by the saying, “Expect the unexpected?
Doesn’t expecting the unexpected make the unexpected expected?
If one supposes something can happen then it certainly is anticipated
If it be anticipated then it is reasonable to assume it is not unanticipated
So then if it be likely, foreseeable or even considered predictable
Then one could safely consider this to be probable or conceivable
So my question is a simple one, what does this statement mean?
You either expect it or you don’t but there is no in between
