Welcome to Urban Word Wednesday! New words, phrases, and sayings I am learning (and using in my day-to-day life) brought to you by ME…and the Urban Dictionary. You are gonna love these!
Shit Show: A description of an event or situation which is characterized by a ridiculously inordinate amount of frenetic activity, disorganization and chaos to an absurd degree. A shit show is often associated with extreme ineptitude/incompetence and or sudden and unexpected failure.
Examples Of Use:
Hubby and I were waiting in line to get my favorite butter pecan latte last week; much to the amusement of the barista.
Hubby: so how was last night’s event?!?!??
Me: a total shit show! Honestly, I’ve never seen anything quite like it. The right hand had no idea what the left hand was doing. Registration was a mess. Everything started late. The main speaker didn’t even show. Complete and utter shit show! The shit show of all shit shows! The magna of all shit shows! A total waste of my time.
Hubby: you really need to learn how to express yourself better…you are so reserved and unfeeling…I totally didn’t get the true “sense” of your emotions here!
*winks at the barista who is in a fit of giggles at this point*
Me: I know…I am way to self-contained. I need to learn to let go, open up, and express how I really feel! But seriously…it was that freaking bad! Lesson learned. I won’t attend one of their events again.
Hubby: always good to know.
Ever attend a real shit show? Or worse, ever organize a shit show? An event that was jaw-droppingly disorganized, chaotic and insane? Come on…share the wealth…
