Perpetulagripist

metrohumanx

Created by: metrohumanx

Pronunciation: purr-PETCH-yoo-luh-GRY-pist

Sentence: Sure, I'm guilty. We're ALL guilty...of coming to work every day to pound out reams of meaningless drivel that nobody ever reads seriously. Sitting thru pointless meetings and concocting vapid "vision statements" which are lies to begin with and kowtowing to semi-illiterate deans and directors who make five times as much as we do and only delegate their imaginary authority while handing out bonuses to their lackeys who drone on and on about their "proactive" approach to multiculturalism and pseudotechnical astuteness. This place makes me want to puke. If the coffee wasn't so good, I'd quit tomorrow and THEN they'd see how easy it is to deal with students who don't speak a word of engrish and have the collective IQ of a bag of hammers. I'm going to the donut shoppe. Do you want me to bring you anything? What do you mean, shut up? Sick of hearing WHAT? That this place is a totalitarian matriarchy run by an illiterate vice president? What do you mean, I'm irritating? What the hell is a PERPETULAGRIPIST? Is that supposed to be an insult? I'm telling the boss that you Verbotomize when you should be working on that mission statement. It smells funny in here.

COMMENTS:

metrohumanx Apostrophe abuse is RAMPANT and irritating.I had to stop reading a book because in the last 3 chapters, the author found a barrel of COMMAS he wasn't using and inserted them with wild abandon. NOW it's unnecessary quotation marks which are getting up my nose! What's this world coming to? http://quotation-marks.blogspot.com/ - metrohumanx, 2008-09-16: 03:13:00

I know what you mean...unnecessary punctuation marks are a pain in the colon! Or is it the semi-colon?????? But I do love ellipses... - Nosila, 2008-09-16: 20:37:00

Sisyfuss

artr

Created by: artr

Pronunciation: sisəfəs (just like the real word)

Sentence: George was such a Sisyfuss. He complained about getting to work. He complained about being at work. He complained about the work he did. He complained about the trip home. While at work he complained about his home life. He not only rolled that big rock up the hill, he pushed it down again trying to take out as many others as possible as it went down. Some say he is able to keep his youthful appearance because he never uses the muscles in his face that are required for smiling.

Etymology: Sisyphus (the son of Aeolus, punished in Hades for his misdeeds in life by being condemned to the eternal task of rolling a large stone to the top of a hill, from which it always rolled down again) + fuss (show unnecessary or excessive concern about something)
