About WotD - Disappointed

Today's WotD is:

gutted
• adjective
Brit. Informal bitterly disappointed or upset.


Whilst also meaning to have one's intestines removed, gutted is used by Brits to refer to a huge disappointment.

You might use it to describe your state of health, well-being or mind after your national football team were beaten 2 – 1 in the dying minutes of their opening game at Euro 2004.

Gutted works equally well for situations such as dropping your car keys in a pond, missing the last train home or being dumped by your fella or bird.

Suggested usage: Fred was gutted after Lou dumped him
I’m gutted that West Ham were relegated
etc

Thanks for giving me the chance to revisit that pleasant feeling. owww...

Also, I don't know if you take...er, requests or whatever, but do you know anything about 'crown and anchor' as a slang term? I've only heard it in one song and I'm guessing it's rhyming slang for wanker, but I can't seem to find anything on it.
