A tool is many things it can be used to build stuff.
It can be a person who says the wrong shit
It can be an anonym for cool

However most of the labelers of this word commonly have a spec in their eye when they label tools. Most people throw the term around so much without realizing that they're an idiot. Conicedently, another defination for tool is someone who doesn't realize they're an idiot. Which means, that most people who use the word tool are tools themselves. Proabably most people (not me) who post on this site about the urban defination of the word tool are coincidently tools.

A person, typically male, who says or does things that cause you to give them a 'what-are-you-even-doing-here' look. The 'what-are-you-even-doing-here' look is classified by a glare in the tool's direction and is usually accompanied by muttering of how big of a tool they are. The tool is usually someone who is unwelcome but no one has the balls to tell them to get lost. The tool is alwasys making comments that are out-of-place, out-of-line or just plain stupid. The tool is always trying too hard to fit in, and because of this, never will. However, the tool is useful because you can use them for things; money, rides, ect.
