(From a few days ago.)
1. (of a person or their appearance or behavior) Lacking good manners, refinement, or grace: “he is unwashed, uncouth, and drunk most of the time”.
2. (esp. of art or language) Lacking sophistication or delicacy.
I was startled out of my thoughts by my mom shouting about something at dinner. I didn’t know what it might be. I finished wiping my hands off on the tablecloth and looked up to find out.
I guess it was that. The hand wiping.
The defense argued that the tablecloth was already dirty & the defendant didn’t have a napkin & the defendant’s pants already had enough stains on them from when accidentally being used for the same purpose at lunch time. The defense tried to bolster their case by accusing the prosecution of similar-but-different past crimes and then mocking the prosecution’s favored tv genre.
Of all the uncouth things I do on a daily basis that pass without note, I was surprised that this one caused such an uproar.
