Synonyms of "Lousy" and their differences

Q: What is the difference between lousy and incompetent ?
A: Incompetent describes someone who is completely incapable of doing something. It means they just can't do it because they don't have the ability.

Lousy is a more informal word that means they aren't good at something, but not necessarily because they aren't capable of doing well.
For example, if someone is an incompetent chef, they probably won't ever become a good chef. But if someone is a lousy chef, they could probably become a good chef if they tried.

So, I think it's better to be lousy than incompetent.


Also, 'lousy' can also be used to describe other things being bad, not just someone's ability to do something. But 'incompetent' can't.

You wouldn't say: That food was incompetent.
Instead, you'd say: That food was lousy.
