Accelerangst

Created by: arrrteest

Pronunciation: ax-sell-er-angst

Sentence: Philip was in a hurry, which seemed like what 99% of the suburbanites were most of the time. He just moved farther outside his comfort zone of freeways and fast moving cars to the fringes where the slow rural life abuts the encroaching planned neighborhoods. He thought having a bigger house and a lawn to mow would be a step up for him. Little did he know he would now be butting heads, or bumpers, with wandering livestock or an occassional combine. However now he seemed to find himself accelerangst up behind slow moving pickups, shaking his fist and downing a few swigs of Mylanta in one hand while honking his horn with the other.

Etymology: accelerate + angst

COMMENTS:

Good word! The sentence reminds me of what I've soon got to deal with - the inevitable chicken(s) crossing the road and the farmer on the tractor who is oblivious to any cars behind him. - purpleartichokes, 2008-04-07: 18:08:00

Slowffeur

Created by: Nosila

Pronunciation: slo fewer

Sentence: Archie drove his ancient Triumph convertible every day down the freeway to his appointments and errands. He was a slowffeur and believed his car lasted longer if he drove slower. Luckily he was very hard of hearing, so he missed all the honks he got from his fellow commuters in the fast lane. He believed that a safe speed was one that was exactly one half of the posted limit. He was finally pulled over one morning by the Highway Patrol. The officer naturally requested to see his license and insurance papers, to which Archie finally shouted: "Never needed either, since I never go over the limits. I don't need papers, I know how to drive!"

Etymology: Slow (not moving quickly; taking a comparatively long time) & Chauffeur (someone paid to drive a person in a car;to drive someone in a vehicle;a person who drives vehicles for a living)
