pajero

pajera/o - adj. lazy, literally it describes a person who sits around and masturbates all day, which means they are ultra-lazy. But when I've heard "pajero" used, it means "lazy". Generally people aren't saying they are huge into masturbating, they are saying they are being lazy.

Estoy terrible pajera. No tengo ganas de hacer nada en absoluto.

I'm feeling really lazy. I don't feel like doing anything at all.

A related expression.
Me da paja. - I don't feel like it.
Me dio paja. - I didn't feel like it.

Chilensis, a VULGAR word

This is one of my FAVE chilean words as I identify with it quite a lot. Hehehe.
I'm not pajera all of the time, THANK GOD, but, from time to time, I do come down with cases of pajerez or would it be pajería? Haha. I use this word all of the time.

Hahaha. That's funny. I heard that about the Chevy Nova too. The Latinamericans made jokes that it doesn't go. No va.

Ahhh! Now I understand why it's vulgar. Someone the other day told me it was, but they wouldn't tell me why.

Dude Clare, hahaha. I was just in Iquique and the Montero Sports there are called "Pajero". We saw them ALL over, you know, what with the duty free Zofri, everyone has nice cars there. It looks like the States. And they must get the version of the Montero Sport that's made for Mexico or something. hahaha.

Pajero means masturbartor in all Spanish speaking countries. That's why even in the United States (second Spanish speaking country in the world) the Mitsubishi car is called Montero. In Iquique they probably get a version made for Asia.
