Polish term or phrase: paczara
All I know about it is that my mother and father used to call me and my brothers and sister this name as we were growing up. I know it's 'slang' and probably regional to a certin area in Poland. It was use when we did something silly or stupid. I don't even know if I've spelled it right. And that's what I really need is the correct spelling.
