Snobligation

Created by: Nosila

Pronunciation: snob lig ay shun

Sentence: Bill Nonpayer is every cashier and fast food clerk's nightmare. He acts as though these people are personally stealing his money instead of receiving payment from him for goods or services. The younger or less experienced the individual is, the more likely he is to complain and embarrass the individual. Bill thinks he is a concientious consumer when he belittles the staff and that it is his snobligation to treat them all badly. But we know what Bill really is, a cowardly bully!

Etymology: Snob (a person regarded as arrogant and annoying) & Obligation (a personal relation in which one is indebted for a service or favor;the state of being obligated to do or pay something)

Cussedtomer

karenanne

Created by: karenanne

Pronunciation: CUS ed tah mur

Sentence: Every day on my waitressing shift, I have a lot of good customers, and a few I call cussed-tomers. They are the ones who demand specialization of every food item (extra well-done, no tomatoes, extra onions, & put the sauce on the side) and then are angry that their order takes longer than others. Also, they blame ME when they don't like how the food has been cooked, or they complain that their sandwich isn't hot enough. How am I supposed to know that? Should I open the bun and stick my hand in there, or just take a bite? The crowning glory is - you guessed it - they usually are really crappy tippers.

Etymology: customer + cussed (CUS ed - adj., antagonistic, belligerent, cantankerous)

Created by: artr

Pronunciation: kəstəmänstər

Sentence: Harold gets no respect at work. He gets no respect from his wife or daughters. Even his mom and dad refer to him as ”Big Dumby”. When he goes shopping he becomes a customonster, pounding his fist on the counter and yelling at the poor clerks if they dare cross him in even the slightest way, that is if he is shopping alone. If with his wife and kids, he sits quietly in the designated husband chair and holds his wife’s purse.

Tyranntesaurus

Created by: Nosila

Pronunciation: tye ran tes sor us

Sentence: It has been almost a year since I began my study in the field of the nefarious Tyranntesaurus. The larger male of the species, whom I have called Dick Tator, is prone to aggressive outbursts against the young of the species, who operate tills in stores and restaurants. He ridicules these younger troupe members to the point of their tears and humiliation, just to prove his dominance. The female companion of this subject, whom I have called Emma Barassed, blindly condones her mate's rages through her silence and fails to interrupt his outbursts, as he would turn his wrath on her. In his tirades about days of yore when prices were less and money went farther, he fails to understand that his joyful retail service experiences happened at a time prior to the birth of these youngsters. Yes, it is my conclusion that there should be a separate line-up at the tills for these curmudgeons and that their ire be quashed by being served by an equally ascerbic cashier, who is as long in the tooth as our subject...Observation by Dr. Jane Badall, Base Camp Checkouts.

Etymology: Tyrant (bully;rule or exercise power over (somebody) in a cruel and autocratic manner) & Tyrannosaurus Rex ( large carnivorous bipedal dinosaur having enormous teeth with knifelike serrations; may have been a scavenger rather than an active predator; later Cretaceous period in North America)
