Sneezebucket

Created by: OZZIEBOB

Stafflococky

Created by: Tigger

Pronunciation: /staf-luh-KOK-ee/ (like 'staphylococci')

Sentence: George really believed that the office couldn't function without him, so he came into work every day, even with a raging respiratory infection. He was so stafflococky that he infected everyone else in the office, and then he had to try to manage when they all called in sick. After several days of that, he threatened to resign because, he claimed, his co-workers were just a bunch of wimps. Also, he suspected that they were conspiring against him by using their sick days all at the same time, because they were jealous of his superior work ethic.

Etymology: Blend of: Staff (as in 'office staff') & Staphylococci - plural of staphylococcus, a variety of infectious bacteria (from Greek, staphyle "bunch of grapes" & modified Latin, coccus "spherical bacterium") & Cocky - overly self-assertive or arrogant (from Old English, cocc; nickname for "one who strutted like a cock")
