French question: "plan foireux"

Hi, I have a question about a phrase in French. What does “plan foireux” mean? My dictionary says "foireux" is scared/afraid but I can’t see that “a scared plan” makes any sense.

Here’s some context: Maya’s friend Sylvie asks her if she has heard from her boyfriend recently. Sylvie knows that the boyfriend got married a couple days ago but Maya, who has no idea he was engaged, says that he has just been too tired lately to call her.

« - Pourqoi toi, tu ne lui téléphones pas ?
- Ben, tu sais... J’ai peur de tomber sur sa mère et je ne veux pas créer des histoires...
- Maya, ouvre les yeux. Ça fait plus de deux ans que vous sortez ensemble. Tu devrais quand même pouvoir téléphoner chez lui sans problèmes, non ? C’est quoi, ce plan foireux ? »
