A crabby, bitter and unattractive old person. Ginks tend to be impoverished, indignant urban dwellers with the same political and social leanings that they had in their 20s, who blame everyone but themselves for their myriad problems, and accost total strangers to air complaints.
Political demonstrations always seem to include at least one wrinkly, unsmiling, badly-dressed septuagenarian gink sporting a homemade sign and haranguing passersby.
Misspelling (sometimes intentional out of ease) of harangue, which is a tirade or rant, whether spoken or written.
In this usage it is usually playful and friendly banter suggesting the other person forcefully remind them later of their failings.
If used in reference to other people (particularly a work superior) it usually delicately and formally suggests the other person was being irritable/annoying in a way that is not career limiting.
"I have a meeting to go to, harang me about that letter later."
"Colleague1: Simon was haranging me over that corporate newsletter.
Colleague2: Ignore it, he was just mad it didn't have his name in it."

Not only were you found guilty of dispatching your housemate’s perfectly amiable boyfriend, the radiation poisoning left in the living room resulted in the ASPCA haranguing you for months over alleged chemical torture of your favourite goldfish, Floptimus Prime.
Row: No, Russell! You said you’d never mention Floptimus Prime ever again! I loved him like a brother. *sobs*

|6.||Business Relationship Manager|
The Epitome of the Idle, Cock Sure Useless Manager's within the IT Industry. Abilties include a total lack of knowledge of the architecture they are supporting, sitting comfortably with a high degree of arrogance and total lack of respect for the people actually doing the required work. Recognizable by the total lack of any pro-active abilties, often identifiable by the fact they only appear when an issue occurs for the customer they look after, and thereafter show the "Follow the Ball" syndrome until some poor bastard end up with the thankless task of sorting out the problem. They will then set up camp behind said person, haranguing the person with inane stupid questions until
a) Problem is resolved
b) Resolver cannot take anymore and guns down entire office with a AK 47 .
Sometimes know under the guise of Partner Services Manager or Service Delivery Manager
"Hey Jack, theres a High Priority Case Just been raised"
"Shit, Head's Down, there's a BRM turned up and he looks like he's up for a ball chasing session"
BRM: Business Relationship Manager
Right-wing Christian lawyer who heads Pat Robertson's American Center for Law and Justice (ACLJ) who is really a Jew, who is really a Christian, who is really a Jew, who is really a Christian. He first got into politics through Jews for Jesus which lead him into the world of the Religious Right. He is frequently seen on "The 700 Club" as well as Fox News and his own radio show haranguing the "anti-Christian" Supreme Court. He is also a huge opponent of the war on Christmas.
According to an article from the "Legal Times" published in Nov. 2005, Sekulow is one of the wealthiest Jesus advocates involved primarily in non-profit work. In other words, he is just another power-hungry nut bent on using Jesus' name and message to make profit.
Jay Sekulow is on Fox News again talking about how the biggest issue in the next election will be whether or not Christians will be allowed to pray in public transport. I wonder how much he gets paid to be a mouthpiece for the right-wing.
