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)

Slomomotorist

artr

Created by: artr

Pronunciation: slōmōmōtərist

Sentence: It never fails, whenever Jim is in a hurry he falls in behind a slomomotorist. He should have known better this time. As he approached this virtual speed bump he saw all the classic signs, the over-sized sedan of dark bland color, the omnipresent turn signal, the silhouette of a fedora and white knuckles. The only thing that was more annoying was the guy in the next lane who felt it was his job to match the speed of the one in front of him effectively blocking him in.

Etymology: slow-motion (action appears slower than in real life) + motorist (the driver of an automobile)
