Remnut

Created by: readerwriter

Pronunciation: rihm-nuht

Sentence: With great pride, her widower dad had always considered himself frugal--he paid his bills on time, he didn't buy anything on credit, he saved every nut and bolt from every house he ever lived in, he had re-soled shoes from the 1960's he might wear again. It carried over into the fridge which she cleaned when she felt brave enough. In that cold and usually dark place, she would find shriveled halves of tomatoes, mold-laden cheese, jars with one or two olives or pickles floating around, several containers with an inch of milk and unknown liquid remaining, heels of bread, packaged globs of what used to be spinach. She sighed at these remnants of meals past. Her dear old dad was a remnut! At least he was making good food choices.

Etymology: Using REMNANT, meaning a usually small part or trace remaining + NUT, meaning a foolish, eccentric or crazy person

Sabottleur

Created by: splendiction

Pronunciation: SA bott le eur

Sentence: A sabottleur is a person known to cause sabotage with almost-empty bottles or containers. The nearly empty bottles build up in large quantities in the fridge.

Often the sabottleur’s main motive is to avoid taking the time to recycle the container.

Etymology: From saboteur (a person who causes harm) and bottle.
