What’s the proper adjective: “shitter” or “shittier”?

I’ve also seen “shit” used as an adjective (vs. “shitty”) but I can see the difference in meaning between those two than the first pair.

A shitter is a toilet; shittier means more shit than previously noted:

Ex: I needed to use the shitter, but it was shittier than I found it this morning.

I agree.

But some use “shitter” like the way “shittier” is usually used:

I think “shit” and “shitter” may have come from the UK but I’ve seen them used stateside more recently

Shitty and shittier are most common in the US, though I’ve heard “He has nothing but shit ideas” so maybe the UK version is crossing over.

Is it normal to feel like my project managers are super pushy? I understand we have deadlines, but lately I have been feeling very rushed. The workload and meeting amount has been getting crazy.

I can’t sit in a meeting then come up with copy lines 45 minutes later. I guess I’m a slow worker but I’m still learning. Is this common?
