Eregretmail

Created by: Nosila

Pronunciation: ee ree gret mayle

Sentence: Not again, Phil thought. He had sent another eregretmail last night and just realized it when he signed on this morning. They should have designated e-mailers when you were too stupified to know what you were doing...it could well save lives, jobs and relationships! SOmetimes using the recall button worked, but most times it was too late. How does one unsay a word, unwrite a stupid thought and/or unaccuse your girlfriend of infidelity??? Yes, at the very least there should be a 24 hour delay button, which would allow you to think twice about what you are sending out, once you sobered up and/or calmed down! Yes, computers were just too e-motional!!

Etymology: e (referring to electronic or computer activity)& regret (feel remorse for; feel sorry for; be contrite about) & e-mail ((computer science) a system of world-wide electronic communication in which a computer user can compose a message at one terminal that is generated at the recipient's terminal when he logs in. Note I had thought e-gretmail, but people would wonder how a tall white bird from the tropical areas could put bad thoughts on its computer!
