Apouthetic

Created by: arrrteest

Pronunciation: a-pow-theh-tic

Sentence: Linda rarely got up from her seat at the local Sternbucks. Only her eyes moved from side to side, tracking the happy-if-not-jittery over-cafeinated customers who happily went on their way throughout the day, while her own esspresso double latte with skim milk and a sprig of cinnamon emptied from her cup more from evaporation than from actually being drunk. Her apouthetic stance contributed nothing to the world but an elbow worn spot on the table, a permanent scowl on her face, and snickering comments from regular customers who would often purposely tried to engage her in overtly cheery conversation to see how she would react.

Etymology: apathetic with pout embedded in it.

The Grumpause. They complain about everything...the weather, politics, doctors, kids today and how they don't build things like they used to. They complain about the cost of everything and sort out the world's problems without actually doing anything. The next day, they start all over again...they've told so many stories so often, they can't remember. They are retired...they put in more time here than they did at their jobs. They mainly do this as an S.O.A...Spousal Avoidance Opportunity!

Javapathy

Created by: Tigger

Pronunciation: /JA-vap-uh-thee/

Sentence: Veronica hated going to the coffee shop next to the building where she worked because it seemed to always be filled with fateful, indifferent, Generation-Y'ers who were filled with javapathy, and acted world-weary and jaded beyond their years. They usually appeared to be alert and perceptive young adults, although that may have just been from all the caffeine. So, why didn't these people have jobs? Who was supporting these flocks of coffee house beatniks, sitting around scowling at the rest of the world, and sipping expensive café mocha lattes?

Etymology: Java - brewed coffee; coffee from the island of Java (Slang, from Java, an island in Indonesia where coffee is grown) + Apathy - lacking enthusiasm for or interest in things in general; indifference (from Greek, apathes "without emotion")
