Certain things I'd believed in completely, failed or seemed to fail me. The kind of life I'd struggled for eluded me utterly. Even my old friends were out of joint so far as I was concerned. (R. Aldington, ‘All Men Are Enemies’, part III, ch. I) — Истины, в которые я безусловно верил, изменили мне, или, во всяком случае, мне казалось, что изменили. Та жизнь, за которую я боролся, окончательно ускользала от меня. Даже в моих отношениях с прежними друзьями точно произошел какой-то перелом.

The world is out of joint, and there isn't a soul alive who isn't half waste or more. (H. G. Wells, ‘Kipps’, book II, ch. 7) — В нашем мире все вверх дном, и каждый человек, кто бы он ни был, впустую растрачивает свои силы и способности.

They've been upsetting everything about me - about us - and I feel as if I was out of joint. (S. Heym, ‘Goldsborough’, ch. 7) — Во мне точно все перевернулось, да и в тебе тоже, - мне кажется, я совсем выбился из колеи.

2) неподобающий

Such behavior seems wholly out of joint with their fine upbringing. (RHD) — Такие воспитанные люди, а ведут себя самым неподобающим образом.
