used to give the impression
that the speaker
is particularly unhappy
with something that has happened.
He had two things on his list that he had to do before tonight. He's known about them for a week. And they were just phone calls! Now Let's talk about that. He can't even make two simple phone calls in a week. This is going to be a really long semester.
This phrase is possibly only used in this manner in and around the University of Iowa.
