Created by: Nosila

Pronunciation: ah bleuw shuns

Sentence: Oscar's manners were non-existant. He had no sense of appropriate behavior in the workplace. For him there was no border between the personal and the professional.

"How can you perform these ablewtions here everyday...have you no sense of pride?", said his co-worker, Felix. "And I hope you have not put your clippings in your coffee mug again!" said his other co-worker, Faith. "Don't worry", said Oscar, "I put them in your mug instead!" Ewwwwww!

Etymology: Ablutions (washing, cleansing, bathing, scrubbing one's self as a daily ritual) & Eww ( Slang expression of disgust or nausea...like yuck or ugh!)
