Javapathy

Created by: Tigger

Pronunciation: /JA-vap-uh-thee/

Sentence: Veronica hated going to the coffee shop next to the building where she worked because it seemed to always be filled with fateful, indifferent, Generation-Y'ers who were filled with javapathy, and acted world-weary and jaded beyond their years. They usually appeared to be alert and perceptive young adults, although that may have just been from all the caffeine. So, why didn't these people have jobs? Who was supporting these flocks of coffee house beatniks, sitting around scowling at the rest of the world, and sipping expensive café mocha lattes?

Etymology: Java - brewed coffee; coffee from the island of Java (Slang, from Java, an island in Indonesia where coffee is grown) + Apathy - lacking enthusiasm for or interest in things in general; indifference (from Greek, apathes "without emotion")
