If you encounter a fully manifested Gremlin, you are advised to stay clear (especially when the Gremlin is in a doorway). If you feel the need to intervene, it has been said a trip to Burger King can passify the creature.
The Gremlin will return to its natural state by morning, usually feeling embarassed and apologetic.
"If you don't call me back I am going to go Gremlin."
Girl: I wish I could but (Gremlin) says that we don't hang out enough since I started talking to you...so I think I'm going to hang with her tonight to make her feel better! She's my best friend and I love her so it's only right that I do, I hope you understand. Just ask me again later and we will for sure!
Guy-under his breath: That maniacal gremlin bitch! Fuck her bullshit!!!!!!
Guy: Yeah..... I understand
Girl: Good, I'm glad (Is happy now)
Guy-under his breath again: I've never hit a woman before but I'm ready to knock some gremlins out!

3.) Mom: "Jonny why the hell do all your socks stick together like this?"
Jonny: "I don't know, maybe the gremlins did it!"
It is rumored that this use was inspired by a picture of a girl who was experiencing this problem while wearing a shirt from the 1984 movie "Gremlins"
The use of this word has become popular because most people (or guys for that matter) don't know what it means, so you can say it to your friend without being so blunt as to say "I can see your nipples."
Katie! Your gremlins are showing!
