- 1. To die, As in the unfortunate reality that often if one dies in their sleep their bowels quite literally relax, thus the term Shit the bed.
2. Slang to describe the breakdown of items that effectively die, especially machinery. Car, Tractor, Lawnmower, etc.
I couldn't get to work today because my car shit the bed. I need a new lawn mower cuz my old one finally shit the bed.
