An annoying series of seemingly unnecessary steps that causes a commotion and results in confusion, irritation and resentment by the people who inevitably have to do all the extra work to fix something they didn't break.
After all the rigamarole Sally caused by changing her tax status and then 10 other people followed suit, we have to re-enter all the timesheets which means payroll will be late! This has never happened before, I'll have to call the bank and investigate our options, it's already after 4:30, somebody better still be there...this is going to wreck my date tonight, if I'm going to be that late, I might as well not go at all...Sally is SUCH a bitch!"
A whole scenario, an outcome, giving it all, etc. Used to group an outcome or other logical conclusion or grouping into one word.
I was going to install a larger engine in my car, but did not want to have to deal with the whole rigamarole.
They took that play to broadway, with dancers, signers, and the whole rigamarole.
Perhaps involving cocaine, extasy, pcp, lots of booze, a joint or two, some lsd, mushrooms...etc.
Usually two/three day benders. The "rigamarole" intensifies as the party continues. Usually involves all the strange happenings as you continue to hallucinate and give 'er...
The rigamarole was intense last night! I think I left my wallet in Akron, Ohio at a rave party?! Why am I waking up in Africa? Who bought my plane ticket? Who are these people?
Can I get some water? Damn that was one intense party. Who was that girl. Yes sir that was some serious RIGAMAROLE...
