Boredowhine

Created by: Nosila

Pronunciation: bor do whyne

Sentence: They called her Crackling Rosie, because she was the Whine Connoissuer in the office. She would complain about everything, even things she could fix herself. She was also the world's worst gossip. When she was boredowhine, she filled up her chats with actual and perceived items about her co-workers. She met her match though when Rhett Seena joined the staff. He was a way worse whiner and gossip than she. It especially hit her hard when he started inventing gossip about her. The boredowhine became a borderline and had to go off on stress leave.

Etymology: Bored (uninterested because of frequent exposure or indulgence) & o (short for of) & Whine (to complain in a paintive, whining way) & Play on Bordeaux Wine (any of several red or white wines produced around Bordeaux, France or wines resembling them)
