Storemybitch

Sentence: The hag had gone on a jag, a store wide deride, turning many an employee in the store house, into a running store mouse.

Like a storm beach, the clerk shored himself up, and braved the storemybitch!

Etymology: The comparison being that of a STORE hit by a STOREMY BITCH, making it as beseiged as as STORMY BEACH. Store - place where goods are sold.

Bitch - a highly offensive term for a woman who attacks, like a storm attacks, but with words, using them to berate and belittle, often in a vulgar way with vulgar language.
