LOL no that would have been awkward.

It may not be the answer you were looking for but its the one I am giving based on either experience, educated guess, google (who would have thunk it ! ) or the fact that you gave nothing to go with in the first place so I used my wonky crystal ball.

"Screwed the pooch" is another way of saying "totally f'd up" for at least 20 years that I know of.

Have you ever heard of ruining someone's whole day? That means killed in military slang.

In really bad parts of town, "payday" means a victim has been spotted.
