trag

adjective clipping; ironical
Unfortunate, characterized by misfortune, bad luck. Used by high school and college girls in informal contexts. Trag is probably a clipping of the word tragic, but has a slightly different connotation. Since it is used in informal contexts only, it does not have the seriousness and sorrow associated with tragic. Instead its meaning is more similar to bad luck, and it is used in reference to smaller personal problems. It is often used sarcastically
