loady

1. slang A shortening of "loadmaster," the crew member of an aircraft responsible for loading and unloading aerial cargo. I'm hoping be a loady when I join the Airforce—that way I shouldn't have to face much direct fighting. After being honorably discharged in '84, my father got a job as a loady for a civilian airline.
2. slang A person who is frequently or constantly intoxicated with drugs or alcohol. I used to party with Tom back in college, but I gave drugs up once I got a real job. He's still just a loady, though, from what I hear.
