Created by: Nosila

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)

You bowled me over with laughter with your brilliant creates ... I wish I could vote four time ... once for Dick Tator ... once for Tyranntesaurus ... once for Emma Barassed ... and once for Jane Badall. What a hoot! - silveryaspen, 2009-04-10: 01:49:00

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)
