Grumpause

Created by: Nosila

Pronunciation: grum pawz

Sentence: They are in there every morning like clockwork. Nursing one coffee for 2-3 hours every day. In fast food places, coffeehouses and other places with free refills and free bathrooms. 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!

Etymology: Grump (a bad-tempered person) & Pause (a time interval during which there is a temporary cessation of something) & Grandpas (the fathers of your father and mother)

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")

Crabbibeano

Created by: jrogan

Pronunciation: crab-bee-been-noh

Sentence: Xavier was a real crabbibeano, and he liked his coffee the way he saw the world -- hot, strong and bitter.

Etymology: crabby + bean + cappuccino
