A sad soul who is being used by others often without even realizing it. Often times people other than the "tool" realize what's going on but choose to laugh at the "tool" instead. It is often very sad as the tool usually finds out after he has been all used up and been made a fool of.

Sometimes a tool is thought of as a jerk, but is usually a nice generous guy who doesn't mind doing favors. Most of the time the tool is just going through depression or thinks that if he does things it will get people off his back.

Tools often are put down as most people don't really like them. Tools are also too stupid to know when they're being used. If you see someone being used you should help them out; most of their "friends" are often lying to them to make them look like an ass in public. Tools can be spotted by causing scenes in public, and people telling them that they're "cool".
Person 1: So that bitch Jessica was just using him like a tool for his homework?
Person 2: Yeah, he was oblivious. She messed with his head just because he would do things for her. He thought he was in love. I tried to help him out, but it just wouldn't work out. After he found out he was so embarrassed and started to cry.
Person 1: How sad. She really is a bitch.
Person 2: And to think that she went out with him knowing how much it would break his heart. I don't think she ever really liked him for who he was.
Person 1: Well at least he can learn from this.
Person 2: Yeah, he's a good guy.

An individual who behaves in their own self interest rather than adhering to a set of beliefs or morals. Someone who will act as though to seek approval on the outside, but is actually quite vain and selfish. Men of this variety tend to cheat on their girlfriends. Women tend to use men to obtain free drinks.
God, Brett is such a tool.

a word used by idiotic scenesters to describe anyone who doesn't fit... unfortunately, they don't realize that by conforming to the indie scene, they are still conforming, and whether they realize it or not, their lives are just as meaningless and externally controlled as the man in the cubicle... and that the people who they are calling tools KNOW that they are being used... they just have half a heart to spend their time helping out the aforementioned fools in hopes that they will see the truth and turn their life around.
fool 1: that kid is a tool
fool 2: I totally know, right? did you know that I asked for a ride to the store and he gave it to me for free?
fool 1: wow... what a tool. he actually HELPED another living being?
fool 2: yeah man, lame... hey, who's frederick kneetshaw?

someone who is both pathetic in their attempts to be socially accepted and a jerk to those who may not accept them because of the typical way they present themselves
Man that guy just tries too hard and he's an asshole about it, what a tool.

Someone who is easily swayed or derailed from ones own opinion or true feelings by perceived outside influences.
Jessamyn is such a tool. She totally wants Skip, but keeps playing stupid games because she thinks other people think it's cool.

a guy who works out instantly gets a sweet tan, frosted tips in his hair, does anything mtv says is cool rooms with you after high school because you got into the same school and have been best friends for 10 years and completely changes himself into a mindless asshole who says brah after every sentence and ditches you every night for his new sweet friends and then one night you confront him about how hes turned into a complete piece of shit copy of every moron at a free rockstar energy drink giveaway and storms out and dissapears for three days only to come back looking suspiciously guilty and smelling of your girlfriend of 3 years perfume and completely ruins your life

Someone you gives up on their own personality and sells their soul to the " cool kids" to be accepted,usually pretending to look like college kids, until high school is over then they usually become a epic fail.
Tool 1: " Whats up bro?"

Tool 2: "Nothin bra, i just got back from buying my polo hat that I will wear backwards, my bermuda shorts, a lanyard for my car keys, a polo shirt, my north face jacket, boating shoes, and my black Z-71 Tahoe."

Tool 1:"Hell yeah bro!"

Parents of Tool 1 and 2: " Why,God, did you curse me with these tools!?"
