shat

verb; analogy
past tense of “shit” as part of the phrase “getting shit on” which means the subject is experiencing some kind of extremely negative situation caused by another person or object, which is metaphorically extended from the idea of literally getting shit on by another animal (e.g. cow) putting you in the bad situation of now being covered with a smelly, dirty, and potentially infested substance.
 
I have heard of the idea of shat being the past tense of shit, but I had never heard of the ”shit” in “getting shit on” being replaced with “shat” until now. Seems to imply that the negative situation is now irreversible or final and cannot be improved due to it being used in the past tense.
Etymology : sit (present) becomes sat (past), shit (present) becomes shat (past)
