Run-time errors

When you get a run-time error, to make an analogy, is it similar to someone being able to read a word(compiler), but not being able to pronounce it aloud?

Typically some form of impossible situation with no valid way to continue
Even worse yet is if something nonsensical does in some way get carried out, and the program carries on anyway

More like, "Hmm, I’m out of milk, Hey can you run to the grocery store for me? and then the person literally just runs to any grocery store and waits, not accomplishing anything.
The instructions were valid but the result was not intended or desired.
