Sentence: After a really bad day at the office, when his boss had not been off his back all day, Jack decided to finally open the bottle of whisky his mum had given him for his birthday back in July. Before long the bottle was half empty and he thought (in his drunken haze) that it would be a great idea to email his boss and tell him exactly what he thought of him. However the moment he clicked the send button he suddenly realised what a worldwidewhoops he had made and immediately started to write out his resignation ready to put on his desk first thing in the morning!

Etymology: See Worldwideweb

Sentence: Dwight was in egony. He and all of the managers in his division had received the e-memo from the big boss. He had meant his commentary about the stupidity of this newest scheme to go to a fellow manager who shared his views but realized as he hit send that he had accidentally clicked "reply all". Not only would this get back to the boss but his detractors amongst the managers would have the evidence of the source of his career implosion.

Etymology: e-mail (messages distributed by electronic means from one computer user to one or more recipients via a network) + agony (extreme physical or mental suffering)

Pronunciation: rrrrrr mail

Sentence: As Bob closed the lid of his laptop he saw the sent confirmation flash on the screen. His face drained of blood and the errmail of his ways hit him fully in the chest. He hadn't noticed when his address book suggested the wrong name. His flaming email about his manager, instead of going to his friend Jim Goodguy, had gone to his boss James 'Jim' Hangnail. Before he took two steps out of his office his phone rang. To errmail is human but to undo would be divine.

Etymology: err: error. Also a sound in this case - "rrrrrr" mail - Referring, in this case, to the act of emailing.

Etymology: Variation on kick in the ass
