Fusstomer

artr

Created by: artr

Pronunciation: fustumer

Sentence: Saturday morning at the Mall was not a great time for Debbie. She had to deal one fusstomer after another. Nothing she did could please this bunch. They wanted faster service. They wanted better prices. They demanded more attention despite the fact that many had cell phones plastered to their ears. One cusstomer even screamed at her when she wouldn't honor an expired coupon issued by a different store. The only thing that gave her peace was the hope that the Karma Police would be issuing tickets later.

Etymology: fuss (become angry and complain) + customer (a person or organization that buys goods or services from a store or business)

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)
