Created by: astorey

Pronunciation: dis-roy-el-tee

Sentence: It was a elite club with just two members--Amber and her co-worker Karen--who knew where to still find Tab and were willing to walk over to the convenience store in the lobby three buildings down to get it. But when Amber discovered that Diet Coke with Lime was an acceptable--and more readily available--substitute, her disroyalty so offended Karen that she couldn't even look Amber in the eye as she charged past her cube with her pink can of Tab in hand.

Etymology: It's a play on disloyalty, but also incorporates the idea of "dissing" the royalty that branded products get.
