A gigantic cluster fuck... but not in a military sense.

A huge fuck-up of epic proportions of some sort or another and its ensuing calamity. As in, the person or normal situation you were supposed to be a part of is now so totally screwed up as to turn the entire scenario into a farce; or something that could end up in you going to either jail or losing your profession.
Holy shit... I went into the office today, and I was fully unprepared for the ensuing shitstorm. This client was so fucked up, I couldn't believe that I was actually part of this human tragedy. I think I will give up finance and take up digging ditches.
