    Re: what does ' have one's tail in a crack' mean?

    To be in trouble, to be in a bad situation.

    Usually the word is a less polite word for "backside" or "bottom."
    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.
