The bad part of a deal, the short end of the stick. When someone gets the boat date, they are getting screwed over.
Comes from VH1 reality shows like "Flavor of Love" or "Rock of Love" where the competition gets down to the final two contestants and the one who goes on a date involving a boat is typically eliminated.
New York got the boat date, so Flav chose Deelishis.
Amber got the fun date, and Daisy got the boat date, so she was eliminated.
I can't believe my co-worker got the promotion and I got the boat date!
