2. vulgar slang A low, contemptible, sexually promiscuous person, especially a woman. It's all that scut bucket's fault for breaking up my marriage! Just because she's had a couple of boyfriends in a short span of time doesn't make her some kind of scut bucket.

I well remember darting up and down back stairs carrying the "scut bucket" on my surgery rotation, diligently retracting and applying suction in the operating room, interviewing and examining patients by myself in clinic, and performing blood draws to help my supervising interns.
