être flingué meaning

“être flingué” generally means to be exhausted. Note that this is an extremely familiar expression and can’t be used in a professional context (unless you are at ease with your colleagues).

More specifically, “être flingué” can also mean that you are drunk or under the effect of a drug depending on the context.

An example of a use of “être flingué” would be :

“J’ai super mal dormi, je suis flingué

roughly meaning

“I slept really poorly, I’m exhausted

In argot (the French language used by the underworld), a flingue is a gun. Hence, the verb flinguer means “to shoot at someone with a gun”, or “to kill someone with a gun”.
