Phonexit

Top verboticism of the day created by Redrover

DEFINITION: v. To arrange with a friend to phone you with a "crisis" during a blind date, in case you need to make an emergency exit; n. A fake "emergency" phone call that is used to end a blind date.

Pronunciation: fone-exit

Sentence: Darlene had made specific arrangements with her friend Marsha to call 20 minutes into her blind date with Richard. She had met him online but when he pressed her for a live meeting she just had a nagging suspicion that he wouldn't be everything he professed to be. So she told Marsha that she needed a phonexit opportunity in case her intuition had been correct - and boy was it ever! She could smell him before he even approached the table and she wished she had arranged for the call the moment he arrived.

Etymology: phone + exit
