Guess I just had to get that rant out! I do get riled up at the "schlubs" screwing with people's lives, I decided to look up that word and found this, look at the next to last line, it seems I could have used an even better synonym for schlub that it says the Australians use: "RATBAG??" wow, I like that one better, "don't wait for some RATBAG to determine your fate".
Do you Aussie mates really use that term? I'm going to start using it in the US with reference to some of these "chowderheads, dorks, chuckleheads, meatheads, sapheads, clodpolls" and the rest of the RATBAGS!
