Top Language: Are you a klutz?

Top Language



I woke up this morning and I spilled brown sugar all over my counter when I was making my coffee. I then dropped a stack of papers all over the floor that had been sorted in alphabetical order. My pen fell to the floor after I pushed it with my elbow. With all this said, we can safely confirm that I was a klutz today!


  • a clumsy person
  •  a person lacking physical coordination, skill, or grace


  • it comes from Yiddish (high middle german)

In Context
