"An eejit is a person or animal with an implant in its head." (In Nancy Farmer's 'The House of the Scorpion', 2002)

In the book, people who break the law, do bad things, etc. are turned into eejits. Eejits are basically human robots. Eejits can only perform simple tasks, such as cleaning, harvesting, looking after animals, etc. An eejit can only perform tasks after it has been instructed to do so, and will continue to perform that task until instructed to stop.

Also a nicer way of calling someone an idiot, usually jokingly.
"The Farm workers are eejits!" cried Matt.

Rosa, a character in the story, was turned into an eejit for not looking after Matt properly because he was a clone.

A "Safe Horse" is an eejit; it will not eat, drink or otherwise move until it is told to do so or dies.

You're such an eejit!
