sub-par behavior; ridiculous, or pathetic; just plain sad. Made popular at the St. Hugh's Summer Programme by two boys from L.A. One who is struggling is a struggler. A struggler struggles. The accusation of "STRUGGLER!" is often accompanied by a specific hand gesture. For example, take your dominant arm, reach behind your head so that the forearm rests against the back of the head, and point forward at the struggler with the index finger, therefore indicating the presence of a true struggler.
"Dude, Ms Noonan dropped her G&D's ice-cream. She's struggling."
