"In deep shit" is an extremely severe negative situation
that an individual or group is forced into
by the outcome of their or others actions. If there was a tub of shit

and are considered a special exception.
Bobs job decription
states that he must achieve position "a" at least daily to retain employment unless his superiors grant him permission to neglect this responsibility
Due to circumstances, whatever they may be - fault of Bob or not, Bob does not complete position "a" without consulting his superiors.
Bob is now "in deep shit."
This was noded as a public service
. I have seen a lot of abuse
of the phrase recently and would like to clairify the correct use of the term.
