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.

Gizmotic

Created by: dochanne

Pronunciation: Giz mot ick

Sentence: Jason tried in vain to untangle his handsfree cord before remembering he had the cordless earpiece in his pocket, swerving to miss a cyclist and cursing as the phone slipped from it's position between his shoulder and his ear. "Hang on!" he yelled at the phone as his beeper went off in his lap and he simultaneously read it and pulled the earpiece awkwardly from his pocket. "Dammit!" he exclaimed as his work mobile went off and he grabbed it automatically, fearing an emergency. He had to swerve again to narrowly miss a motorcycle and dropped the work mobile, scrabbling until he caught it mid-slide on it's way to the floor. "Jason here." he said, but it was Janeen on the other mobile wanting him to pick up bread. His beeper went of again and as he picked it up he heard his secretary's voice from the work mobile laughing. "Jason stop it! Just pick up your work phone and stop being gizmotic!" He complied just as he realised that light had actually been red.

Etymology: Gizmo - smallish technological tools frequently of dubious utility. Chaotic - descriptive of the chaos engendered by trying to answer, read or attend to multiple gizmos simultaneously.
