Sabottleur

Created by: splendiction

Pronunciation: SA bott le eur

Sentence: A sabottleur is a person known to cause sabotage with almost-empty bottles or containers. The nearly empty bottles build up in large quantities in the fridge. The collection will stink, occupy space and needlessly remain chilled. The sabottleur’s justification may be that leaving a small quantity is better than nothing. Often the sabottleur’s main motive is to avoid taking the time to recycle the container.

Etymology: From saboteur (a person who causes harm) and bottle.

Condimentalist

Created by: Nosila

Pronunciation: kon di men tal ist

Sentence: It was only after they had moved in together that Sandra realized she was living with a condimentalist. Fred would use up the ketchup, mustard, relish and sauces in the fridge and then put the empty containers back until the naive Sandra would reach for them. Not only would she not know they had run out of something before she went for groceries, she would be forced to eat salads without dressings, fries without ketchup or hot dogs without the fixings. The only thing that cured him was when she placed empty beer bottles in the fridge on really hot days...wah, wah!

Etymology: Condiment (a preparation (a sauce or relish or spice) to enhance flavor or enjoyment)& Mentalist ((philosophy) a person who believes the doctrine that mind is the true reality and that objects exist only as aspects of the mind's awareness)
