To smart to work, he thinks. Or she thinks.
An underachiever or irritatingly laid-back character.
Possibly disorganised, possibly prone to procrastination.
There can be a bit more to it than mere laziness or sloppiness, a perception that the rat race isn't worth it and shop-till-you-drop a surrogate happiness of low quality, and a slow poison, too. So this kind of slacker might (or might not) be dedicated to what he or she does (paragliding, for example), but would probably not list “climbing the corporate ladder” as an ambition or “shopping” as a hobby. May be a bit of a “Generation X
Hear Beck's song “Loser” or see the video for Soundgarden's “Black Hole Sun”.
B: “You know, while you got cash I had a look at the profiles you had your class fill out. Would you believe more than two third of the girls and several of the boys listed “shopping” as a hobby?
I mean, most of the girls I went to school with were crazy about buying all kinds of stuff and they would disappear in shoe shops for days, but list “shopping” as a hobby? No one would have thought of it as a damn “hobby”! And even if someone had, they still wouldn't have dared to admit they're so damn shallow. What has the world come to?
G: “Yeah, I know. Nothing to be done about that. The shits are doomed and so are we. You should see their parents. Now get off your butt and out of the car, you little slacker, we still need to get groceries.”
Someone who puts off doing things to the last minute, and when the last minutes comes, decides it wasn't all that important anyways and forgets about it
Man I wish I could be a slacker like that guy Angry Steve.
A slacker is someone who while being intelligent, doesn't really feel like doing anything. A good example would be someone who gets Bs and As, while doing absolutely nothing other than playing video games on occasion.
Being a typical slacker, Yuri didn't feel like doing his english report. Fuck it. Not doing it would only bring him down 3 points. Besides I'm playing video games.
Someone capable of doing work, but is too lazy to do it correctly; Work-a-phobic
Dave from the 2001 movie "Slackers"
someone who does the least that is required. in school they take classes that require the least amount of effort such as band
or if possible a study hall
and in those classes they play cards if possible. slackers also procrastinate often. they are also often characterized by laziness.
i am a slacker, you should be too
someone who is very lazy, doesn't do their work until the last minute, and frankly, enjoys it
Greg is a big slacker...he's only read 50 of the 150 pages he needs to read by tomorrow and its already midnight
A person who does anything they can to avoid doing work. A person who doesn't do a big project till the last night, and then does it half-assed and turns it in. A person who writes urban dictionary definitions instead of studying for his finals. A person who would rather smoke weed and play video games all day than do anything else.
Imma slacker, never did I have a lot of dough
Imma slacker, smoking pot and watchin' videos
Imma slacker, go whichever way the wind blows
Those just tuning in I'm just letting' ya know
Imma slacker, every time I take a look around
Imma slacker, stuck upon my face is a frown
I don't do enough, I just fool around
Ya'll can go to hell, how does that sound
