Originally a Scottish & Irish word, now used in Wales, England and even all former British colonies in place of "shit" but only when suitable, it does not always replace shit in any context. Many non-Scots and non-Irish have started using it in the incorrect context making it sound contrived and plain fucking stuping
Correct:

When watching BBC propaganda "What an utter load of shite!"
When attempting to watch Australian TV "Now that was fucking shite, never again"
When served some below standard food "What's this shite?"
When checking out clothes your missus want you to buy "That's a shite shirt if ever I saw one"

Incorrect:
When warning trouble "You are going to get in shite" (Scots & Irish would use shit or another verb over shite here)
-When giving a compliment "This coke is good shite" (Scots & Irish would use shit or another verb instead of shite here)
