A portmanteau of dilettante and retard. Those *lovely* men and women who flit from one job to the next, never really doing a single one well, but determined to find their "true calling in life." often while being supported by mom & dad or a rich husband. Always very determined in their interviews, this breed starts to lose enthusiasm as soon as a task can't be easily completed or is too boring or beneath them.
Jane, the new girl, keeps talking about her wedding instead of finishing that project. She's such a dilettard.
