Claustairphobia

Created by: Nosila

Pronunciation: klost aer foby ya

Sentence: Kenny travelled the world by air. YEMEN, he knew the airline FRONTIER, from EASTERN to WESTJET and from CANADANORTH to the SOUTHWEST and was a very CONTINENTAL passenger. He had flown on planes from the DELTA to a LOT of countries. He'd been in the SAS, because he was BRITISH and knew the AER LINGUS fluently from each jet he'd been on. He could say ALOHA, JAL come back now,and OMAN and other words of OLYMPIC proportions. He knew which airlines served LUXAIRious meals; where the AEROFLOTation devices were;and who had VARIGreat service. One thing he hated about all airlines were the reclining seats. The right hand apparently had not known what the LUFTHANSA was thinking when they invented them. EL AL they did was cause claustairphobia for the passenger behind. Being no VIRGIN to travel, he honestly did not know how reclining your seat just 3 inches could give you a more restful sleep. He thought all passengers who hated this should stand UNITED against the airlines in solid AIRity. He had just watched "QANTAS OF Solace" on the air movie and did not know how anyone could sleep through that...

Etymology: Claustrophobia (a morbid fear of being closed in a confined space) & Air (travel via aircraft)

Narrowbinded

thegoatisbad

Created by: thegoatisbad

Pronunciation: nhar-oh-byn-ded

Sentence: Zinnia liked to think of herself as open-minded but her commute to work, via public transport, had slowed changed her mind. Indeed, she was now so anxious of being narrowbinded that she would go to great lengths to assure a seat by herself. The fake dog stool she found at a gag shop was a good deterrent, but she left it on too many buses and was arousing suspicion among the drivers. She finally discovered that the best way to protect her person space from breech was to softly sing while eating canned tuna.

Etymology: narrow (small space) + binded (sic. secure by tying) play on "narrow minded"
