A Ghettoized form of the word Wretched: very unhappy, ill, etc.: very bad or unpleasant: very poor in quality or ability.

Popularized by American waste-of-space (See: Rapper) Lil' Boosie in his song "Ratchet" in which Boozie, aka Torrence Hatch, describes many of the foul people he encountered in his underprivledged life before being incarcerated for drug possession. He is currently a drain on the American taxpayer.

The term Ratchet is now used in excess by dumb, middle-class, white girls in an attempt to escape their mundane lives by pretending to be in touch with "the Hood". These tween cum stains are under the impression that their generation has, yet again, created something new and hip. Little do they know, the term Ratched is merely the latest example of a high school drop out using a mixture of phonetics and ebonics to create cock-ups of legitimate English words.

These tween morons are exactly the type of nimrod that Lil' Boozie would have tried to sell codeine to outside of the local mall.
Jenny: "OMG, Bianca, isn't that Taylor making out with your ex? That hoe is so ratchet".

Bianca: "Jenny, you're white. Please stop trying to sound like some wretched Ghetto trash and use proper English. Thanks."

2: No. You mean to say she's "wretched". Ratchet is a type of wrench. Another acceptable word you could've used is "skanky" or "whorish."

1) A ratchet is a mechanical device that allows continuous linear or rotary motion in only one direction while preventing motion in the opposite direction. Though something of a misnomer, "ratchet" is also often used to refer to ratcheting socket wrenches, a common tool with a ratcheting handle.

2) A character in the Transformers franchise. (Seriously?)
1) There is a ratchet in that clock. That means that the clock can't turn the opposite direction...

2) Ratchet can turn into an ambulance at will.

It's a fucking socket wrench.
The correct way to use the word "ratchet" would be, "Wow, this ratchet is so useful."
"Damn, she so ratchet-"
"Shut the fuck up, it's a socket wrench."
