Egony

artr

Created by: artr

Pronunciation: ēgənē

Sentence: Dwight was in egony. He and all of the managers in his division had received the e-memo from the big boss. He had meant his commentary about the stupidity of this newest scheme to go to a fellow manager who shared his views but realized as he hit send that he had accidentally clicked "reply all". Not only would this get back to the boss but his detractors amongst the managers would have the evidence of the source of his career implosion.

Etymology: e-mail (messages distributed by electronic means from one computer user to one or more recipients via a network) + agony (extreme physical or mental suffering)
