When the majority of things appear to be negative. Like the shape of a pear, the majority is at the bottom (bad) and little is at the top (good).

British slang term, used to describe when a situation has gone bad....I've no idea where it originates, but that's how it's used.
Since the new manager took over, things at work have gone all pear-shaped and I'm afraid I may be out of a job soon.
