To muck about, wasting time doing something not necessary.
I've been faffing about all day with my car
1. to waste time doing nothing. 2. to waste time doing stupid things 3. to delay, dilly-dally, especially before leaving the house to be on time somewhere.
Example 1: "I didn't do anything on Sunday; I just faffed around the house."
Person 1: "I can't decided between these 2 jackets to wear to the movies. Which one? Where is my black hat? Oh wait, let me get my phone. Do you know where I put it? Oh and did you feed the cat dinner? Maybe I can just check email really quick right now; we have time."
Person 2: "Stop your faffing. We have to leave now or we won't make it."
"He faffed around on the internet for so long that he was almost an hour late meeting us at the bar."
The ability of making an easy, usually logistical, process complicated.
"We were supposed to be there an hour ago but with all the 'faffing' we were late."
Fucking Around for Fucking Forever
Stop faffing and get down here, we haven't got all day.
He spends most of his day faffing, eating and sleeping. Nothing particularly useful.
To showboat, musically. To solo excessively and busily. Almost silly...
I want him to take a solo, but he faffs too much
Fetch a fucking fortune
