Shopnesia

artr

Created by: artr

Pronunciation: shop-nee-zhuh

Sentence: Ralph really enjoys shopping. He loves to find a discount. He gets a thrill discovering just the right item. His ecstasy wanes when he gets to the register. This is when shopnesia often kicks in. Thinking about the next task on his "to-do" list can circumvent picking up his acquisition and taking it home. The money he saves on bargains can quickly be spent in fuel as he returns to the store to retrieve the purchase he left behind.

Etymology: shop (to visit stores for purchasing or examining good) + amnesia (loss of a large block of interrelated memories)
