schlep

1. verb, slang To haul something, especially in an awkward or ungainly manner. From Yiddish. The apartment building I moved into didn't have an elevator, so I had to schlep all my stuff up the stairs. My mom doesn't drive, so I bought her a rolling shopping cart so she doesn't have to schlep her groceries from the store anymore.
2. noun, slang A tedious, arduous, or inconvenient journey. From Yiddish. If we're going to make the schlep all the way across the country, then we might as well take the minivan. It's always been a bit of a schlep between here and the center of town, but the new light rail system should hopefully make it a much easier commute.
3. noun, slang A foolish, bumbling, or incompetent person. From Yiddish. What a bunch of schleps! First they get my order wrong, then they send it to the wrong address, and now they're trying to refund me the wrong amount of money! Jeff is managing the project? That schlep couldn't manage his own sock drawer.
