Is a a mild infection sort of like the common cold. That maybe contracted through visiting various stores ie... Walmart, Family Dollar, Bodegas, or anywhere Quest is accepted. When contracted with the infection. You tend to do "IGNANT" S**T like going out in public with attire such as: SCARFS on YO HEAD, PAJAMA PANTS, & other CRAZY s**T that SET African-Americans back another 400 years. There is a CURE, but it's in a BOOK, & people that have "RATCHETNESS" are ALLERGIC 2 BOOKS! also look under the term: "NI**ASHIT"

You might think this word means ghetto, dirty, trashy, loud, and hoeish ...BUT

This word is used to downgrade a beautiful individual or a group of beautiful women out of jealousy.

Women that are called ratchet are most likely women who are intelligent, low key, gorgeous, amazing, and fabulous with a down to earth personality.

Ratchetness is a term used by haters.
"Hey you see those girls over there doing the Macarena, dancing with each other around a pile of shoes, but still looking all cute?"

"Yea gurlll... ratchetness!"

"I know gurrllll!"

Noun.

A connoisseur of ratchet women, especially those pulled from nightclubs after last call. The ratcheteer's natural mating call is Rihanna's Talk That Talk which he requests from the DJ or sits in the parking lot banging from his car. The Ratcheteer has a specialized mating dance, similar to a body roll, used to signal ratchets that he is in heat. He is especially adept at disposing of evidence in parking lots.

Once a ratcheteer has identified and brought his ratchet back from the club for an "afterparty" he seeks out four specific environments for mating:

1. A living room full of partygoers
2. A public balcony
3. Someones kitchen
4. An air mattress

The ratcheteer typically will have no recollection of the previous evening as they will sleep until noon the next day. They will only find out about their behavior once on word spreads of their ratchetry on social media websites. Ratcheteers will spend all Monday at work on Facebook deleting evidence so close friends and family do not discover their ratchetness.
Q. What time is it?
A. 1:57 AM.

Q. Did you see that guy parking lot creepin' on those ratchets?
A. Yes, he promised them soda and nuggets at his afterpary.

Q. He should be put on probation for ratcheteering son.
A. Fo sho. bboy.
