look up any word, like the eiffel tower:

A flipjob is when you realize you have forgotten to pay child support and promptly leave work to drop off the check and end up getting fired. It is pulling a 180 on a busy street because you realize you're truly in love with a woman. A flipjob can also simply be when your mind jumps to a random thought and is captivated by that instead of anything important. Also, may be a reference to "flipping someone the bird" when they didn't think you had the balls to do so, or possibly even rolling a cigarette of some type.
