A dastardly act that can be used as both a verb and noun. To be late, unreliable, undependable, a no show, due to being inconsiderate and selfish. To pull a Compton is usually followed by often used and repeated lame ass excuses i.e. "I overslept" or "My cell phone died" etc. without taking proper measures to correct said problem or mistake; making it an excuse and not a reason for unacceptable behavior. Another characteristic is passive aggressive bullshit due to a failure to face conflict like a man.
Person 1, "Man, where is Mike? He is 4 hours late!"
Person 2" "I don't know, Mike is pulling a Compton"
Person 1, "Where's Mike, he agreed to come out and hang out?"
Person 2, "Mike is a no show again, Mike is pulling a Compton."
Person 1, "Mike, why haven't you answered your cell phone?"
Person 2, "Oh man, I forgot to charge my cell."
Person 1"You've had a cell phone for years now, you do know you need to charge it? Or Are you just pulling a Compton, Mike?"
