Slotorist

artr

Created by: artr

Pronunciation: slōtərist

Sentence: It never fails. The only day that you are behind schedule, you get stuck in back of a slotorist. Through the rear window all you can see is a fedora and a set of wrinkled white knuckles. The brake lights pop on at every curve or dip in the road. Just when you think you\'ll explode, you get a section of the road where you can pass. On you go to make up some time only to get pulled for speeding. The procedure takes a few minutes. Just long enough for you to resume your position behind Methuselah.

Etymology: slow (not quick or fast) + motorist (driver of an automobile)

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

Egomotortist

Created by: verbherder

Pronunciation: ee-goh-moh-tawr-tist

Sentence: It was ten minutes to close at the only store in town when my baby's mama held up the last diaper in the house and announced that junior had suddenly developed an explosive case of diarrhea. I would have made it there and back with time to spare if not for an egomotortist in a Prius. When I returned without reinforcements, things went south down south. For the rest of the night I wished that junior could have spent just one minute in that guy's car.

Etymology: egotist + motorist + tortoise (in sound mostly)
