To make a right mess of things, to bollocks up a task, either at work, or driving the car, making a faux pas.
a I was filing back some documents and would you believe it, I made a right pigs ear of it, I misfiled everything.
b I made so many spelling mistakes on my document, I made a right pigs ears of it, my boss got the right arse ache. He asked me if I had heard of a spell checker.
c I was backing the car out of the garage, I overshot the drive and smacked it one against the gate post, scratching it. 'What a pigs ear I made of that one'
