    gutted?

    I am hearing people using this word, they say,

    I am absolutely gutted or I am gutted.

    What does gutted mean in this context?

    Thanks.

    Re: gutted?

    Is this slang?

    To gut means to remove the inside organs (heart, stomach, liver). Deer are gutted when processed. The "guts" are all the insides.

    So when a person says "I am gutted" it means that it may feel like their insides are being torn out. A very deep, emotional feeling.

    In fact, the term "gut wrenching" is a term used to describe a deeply profound event or feeling. To see children killed in war is gut wrenching.

    It's British slang meaning extremely disappointed and unhappy.

    Doesn't "I'm gutted" sometimes mean "I'm exhausted"!
