look up any word, like bae:
 
1.
A diva, mostly from urban cities and ghettos, that has reason to believe she is every mans eye candy. Unfortunately, she's wrong.

Typical signs to beware of include, but are not limited to:
-owning a Blackberry
-BLARES anything by Drake, 2Chainz, Nicki Minaj, Gucci Mane, Waka Flocka, Lil Wayne, T-Pain, Cali Swag District, or any other garbage entertainment rapper
-rowdily quotes "lyrics" from aforementioned artists
-has a weave reminiscent of a bird's nest after a tempest hit the tree it was in, and is dyed at least thrice
-wears torn leggings/stalkings (mostly of the fishnet variety), unpolished 8" heels (or higher, depending on how God-awful they look), fitted jean jackets (to accent the blubber 'round their arms and stomach), and 4 layers of caked on make-up to go clubbing
-repeatedly use ludicrous terms such as "YOLO", "swag", "boost", "beaking", "doe", "really", "naw", "actually", "twerk", "coaster", "dagga", etc., to make a valid statement when they speak
-have side bangs, despite having incredibly small-ass foreheads to support them
-are commonly overweight
and are mind-numbingly stupid; a safe assumption to make would be saying they're uneducated (as if they could pass the 4th grade)

If spotted, please report to the authorities, notifying them that they are possible smack addicts, or potential, degenerate Chaka Khan look-alikes.
Imagine a woman that wears skinny clothes, bad looking heels & fishnet stalkings, blasts Drake or Waka off her phone, would go out of her way as to cop CD's from these artists, has a bad hairdo, looks immensely disgusting as a human being, and would rather spend her time maintaining her looks, communicating among her folk, and being a jobless, gold-digging bum for the rest of her days, not even bothering to get herself a good shower, a paying career, and a damned effort to earn a diploma.

That, my comrades, is a prime notoriety of a ratchet.

God help us all.

1. Has several children with multiple different fathers.
2. Lives off government funding.
3. Excessive drug or alcohol use.
4. Typically promiscous with a general disregard for men that she may be in a relationship with.

Ratchet is a noun as well as an adjective. As a noun, a ratchet is someone (male or female, of any race) that has no social grace. They do not know how to say things like "please" or "thank you" and are often seen wearing clothes that are either too big or too small. Example: "That ratchet came over here and made a huge mess, then left it for someone else to clean!"

As an adjective, ratchet describes a person's behavior. It does not imply or insinuate a gender, race, or sexual preference. Plainly put, if someone says, "You are ratchet" they are saying you act like a fool, you have no manners, and you are ignorant in all forms of etiquette. A ratchet customer in a bar or restaurant will make ridiculous demands, they will flag a server down 100 times for stupid things, they chew with their mouths open, they make a huge mess on the table, they sit in someone's section for hours without buying anything (they will drink water and suck ice cubes instead), and they won't leave a dime because ratchets are notoriously cheap. They will also pluck one of their own hairs and drop it on their empty plate and then demand a refund for the food they ate.

Don't be ratchet!
Noun: We had to call the police because two ratchets got into a fight.
Adjective: She was at least 250lbs and wearing a pair of yoga pants that said "Bootylicious" across the back. She is ratchet!
