Multitaskhole

picabomama

Created by: picabomama

Pronunciation: multi/task/hole

Sentence: It never failed that as soon as Kelly and her husband Aaron got into the car he would pull out his cell phone and start dialing. While he was waiting for it to connect he would spin the dial on his iPod to show off his latest musical finds, never actually letting any of the songs play farther than the chorus. All of this was made more annoying by the fact that while at home the multitaskhole couldn't seem to fold laundry and watch TV at the same time.

Etymology: multi-tasker + a%&hole I believe that is self-explanatory.
