Sentence: For Valentine's Day my husband decided to do me a favor and organize my messy closet. This "gift" was really a manifestation of his OCD and I asked him not to do it. Of course, he ignored me and I came home one afternoon to find him unconscious on the bedroom floor, under an avalanch of apparel debris. When he came to, he promised never to MAIDDLE in my affairs again.

Etymology: maid- someone who performs the service of cleaning other people's home meddle- to butt in, to interfere
