Scattertasking

artr

Created by: artr

Pronunciation: skatərtaskng

Sentence: Tom believes he is good at multitasking. Anybody near him knows that scattertasking is closer to the truth. If he has more than one thing to do at a time someone is going to be hurt, usually Tom. He's been known to scald himself with hot coffee, staple his fingers, poke himself in the eye with his cell phone and stab himself with a pencil, all before his computer could boot up.

Etymology: scatter (throw in various random directions) + tasking (a piece of work to be done or undertaken)
