Hanoiance

Created by: Nosila

Pronunciation: han oy anse

Sentence: Sheldon had waited a long time to get into his favourite popular Vietnamese restaurant. Then he had waited another long time to have his order taken. An older couple had come in after him and got their order long before he did. He felt a deep sense of hanoiance over the favoritism shown to this pair. He finally spoke to the waiter, demanding to know why he was being treated this way. The waiter smiled sheepishly and explained that the couple were his elderly grandparents, the actual owners of the restaurant, who had to be back to the seniors' home before 7:00 pm. With a sigh gone, Sheldon realized he was being pho-lish and hue too hasty, as it was their recipes he was enjoying. Even though he'd had to wait, it was a nguyen-nguyen situation for him.

Etymology: Hanoi (Capitol city of Viet Nam) & Annoyance (the psychological state of being irritated or annoyed) Also: Hue (pron: hway)ancient people of Viet Nam and a name of a city there); Pho (Vietnamese soup);Nguyen (pronounced Hwin) most popular Vietnamese surname and family name of a royal dynasty)

Thanks James! great cartoon too! It made me think hard on my own definition :)

mweinmann - 2009-04-07: 07:39:00
The cartoon was very thought provoking....that sometimes, we might want to wait or that what we are waiting for might not be the "answer" to our wishes in the end.

Thank you. I guess the feeling is that sometimes we're lucky enough NOT to get what we wanted. ~ James
