Its just a disgusting derogatory word that some use to describe others. Incompetent is a much more accurate description of these people.

It is a proper noun and as such, it must be capitalized.

Oh. I thought you were talking about peanut butter.

That would make it an adjective. Right?

If you're a loan officer it is a term of endearment, so I would say noun.

I'm not allowed to say that word. It should just be Skip. Then it'd be like all the other four letter words...

Skippy (n) [skip pee]: Everyone except for me and my buddy.

See also:Skip, Uncle Skip, Uncle Skippy

Derivation: brainchild of one Bobby Bucks making reference to the generic caricature of appraisers who are chiefly employed because they are willing to indulge in highballs after work with the banking crowd. Also those who are engaged in physical relationships with the sister or brother of such banking types.

The term "skippy" in its modern English definition has become rooted in slang, referring to any appraiser who disagrees with you, or gets more orders from shared clients.

Skippy has also moved on to refer to any review appraiser who makes you do your job right--the second time.

There have also been documented cases of Skippy occasionally referring to appraisers who run large firms or have a plethora of trainees.

Other matters of usage

While on this important subject, there is urgent need to correctly set out the plural. Most agree there are many out there. Skippys or Skippies?
