Being refined as she was, Penny, had taught young Deb that La Creme de la Societe, to which they belonged, never touched vulgar cash themselves. Why, that was why one employed servants and lawyers.

It was safer than carrying cash and afterall,it was better to Heir on the side of caution...

Pronunciation: cash + stash + shun + nur OR cash + stay + shun + nur

Sentence: Margo had never been neer a Cash Station. To her, it represented everything that she avoided.....lots of cash being dispensed and handled. She absolutely eschewed anything to do with coins, bills or green paper. She prided herself on never needing to handle cash. Her friends began to refer to her as a cashtashunner, both because she shunned cash stations and because she had never had a stash of cash in her life.

Etymology: Cash, Cash Station, Stash, Shun


can't quit laughing over cash stations - good play on cashtration meaning to cut out the cash? Terrific last line! - silveryaspen, 2009-03-13: 10:08:00

Wow...never thought of cashtrashun....that would have also been a great word!!! - mweinmann, 2009-03-13: 10:39:00

would have never thought of it by myself and I like the way you spelled it better. Amazing how minds inspire minds here ... and laughter creates more laughter! - silveryaspen, 2009-03-13: 19:00:00

Pronunciation: plas tee O tron icks (the OH/zero in the middle is no mistake)

Sentence: Ever since the government debt became more than could ever be paid, the goverment quit minting money. All payment is now made via plastiotronics.

Etymology: PLASTIC - slang term for any and all credit and debit or welfare payment cards. ELECTRONICS - in this case, electonics limited to keeping track of your credits and debits based on the imaginary money of today's world; the new electronic barter system.


Can you envision a trillion anything? Money is no longer a meaningful paper/coin chase, but meaningful plastiotronics chase! - silveryaspen, 2009-03-13: 09:38:00

scary times - great word - Jabberwocky, 2009-03-13: 10:42:00

Very good word for imaginary money. - Mustang, 2009-03-14: 00:35:00

Pronunciation: KREH dits

Sentence: Merry Spinder loves to buy everything on credit and has developed an elaborate system of rationalization for this habit. She is such a creditz that she reasons that she is actually making money doing this, because while the credit card company charges 8% interest on what she owes, the money that's sitting in her mutual fund earning interest is supposedly making more than that. Except she forgot that the stock market hasn't been doing too well lately, and, oh yeah, paying $39 late fees isn't helping her "make money" either. This is the same woman who in college thought that if she still had checks in her checkbook, that meant there was still money in the account!

Etymology: credit + ditz


Sadly, she ain't the only creditz around... - Nosila, 2010-09-24: 23:55:00
