Omani Arabic: Word of the Day

Today I was in a line for my visa (as per usual as Oman's longest running tourist) and the wait was soooooooooooooooooo inexplicably booooooooooooooring.

This feeling of banality that anihilites the mind and senses has a special vocab word here in Oman. It is called "kroob".

My day was "kroob". Waiting to get anything done at a hospital or ministry is "kroob".

Opposite? "Shattr". This is like, "cool" or "slammin'".
