I'm looking for a word or an expression to mean a task which is done out of laziness, lack of interest, hastiness incompletely and in little quality. I found that cut corners could mean the same thing, what about botching? Could you think ofAny other words or idioms?
A-Since I found the job so boring and I was in a hurry too, I botched my job.
B-Since I found the job so boring and I was in a hurry too, I cut corners to finish it.
C-Since I found the job so boring and I was in a hurry too, I did a half ass job doing it.
To me, 'to half-ass' something doesn't sound good. Maybe it does in Polish.
A, B, and C have different meanings.
To botch something means to make a complete mess of it. It's not necessary that corners be cut.
To cut corners means to leave out some parts of the activity, not doing something properly, or do something sloppily. Sometimes the results will be OK, and sometimes they won't.
If you do a half-assed job of something, you haven't necessarily botched it completely, but the results won't be as good as they should be.
But the original mistake, or botch, does not need to be the result of laziness or indifference or haste.
(Although indeed it might be)
"To cut corners" is to attempt a reduction of cost in terms of time and/or money. Neither laziness nor lack of interest are necessary for this, although haste and incompleteness may be the unavoidable result.
So neither expression meets your description adequately enough.
If I wished to indicate that a task had been performed lazily, without due attention, in a rush, or incompletely, I think I would simply call it "careless".
I am not a teacher.
A common phrase that you could use is "phone it in." This means that you did not give your best effort. It implies laziness and lack of interest in the task.
"Since I found the job so boring and I was in a hurry too, I phoned it in."
The phrase comes from the idea that important business is conducted in person, while less important business may be conducted over the telephone.
