Payaway

Created by: mrskellyscl

Pronunciation: pay-away

Sentence: When Roger got home and looked in the back of the minivan he realized that the groceries he bought for poker night with the boys were left behind, probably in a shopping cart in the store's parking lot. Chances were good that they were gone. The guys would certainly get a laugh at him. He'd have to come up with a believable story to save face. "I'll tell them that I bought the stuff on payaway," he thought, "that will buy me enough time to get back to the store."

Etymology: pay: purchase, buy + away: gone (wordplay on layaway -- to pay for things over time)

Shopnesia

artr

Created by: artr

Pronunciation: shop-nee-zhuh

Sentence: Ralph really enjoys shopping. He loves to find a discount. He gets a thrill discovering just the right item. His ecstasy wanes when he gets to the register. This is when shopnesia often kicks in. Thinking about the next task on his "to-do" list can circumvent picking up his acquisition and taking it home. The money he saves on bargains can quickly be spent in fuel as he returns to the store to retrieve the purchase he left behind.

Etymology: shop (to visit stores for purchasing or examining good) + amnesia (loss of a large block of interrelated memories)

Storgot

Created by: memyselfandbo

Pronunciation: Store-got

Sentence: As instructed by his wife Gail, Sam dutifully picked out a gallon of 2% milk for the baby and was about to check out when he noticed a large display of spicy mustard at the end of aisle 12. He did his best to prevent drooling on the linoleum as he thought of pairing the mustard with his food of choice, bratwurst. He ran down the aisles to pick up some brats and buns and went back to the glorious mustard aisle. With his four items bumbling in his arms, he approached the cashier who rang up his items. She placed the brats, buns, and mustard in one bag and the milk in another. With firing up his grill on the brain, Sam grabbed the treasured bag with glee but storgot the milk. Only when he saw Gail's angry glare did he remember why he went to the store in the first place. Sam's heart sank as he realized he'd be on diaper duty for the next two weeks. And it sank even lower as he got back in the car, prolonging his bratfest even further.

Etymology: Store: a place that sells milk, brats, buns, beer, and other stuff you can eat. Forgot: to not remember.

Buygoner

Created by: Nosila

Pronunciation: by gon er

Sentence: Edward was a buygoner. Unlike your average man, Edward shopped till he dropped and forgot what he purchased. There were bags all over the house, full of stuff he thought would make great gifts for someone. The only problem was he forgot what he bought for who and ended up buying them something else. He loved shopping and enjoyed it until the Visa bills came in. Then he'd have a slight jag of buyer's remorse, pay the minimum and set off again next time for another round of rampant consumerism. He knew he needed help one warm July night when he tried to find out what was causing the absolutely gross smell in his car. He thought he had run over a piquant rodent and it had left DNA on his tire. But no, when he finally opened the trunk and went through the bags he had stored inside, he found the culprit. Oh no, he thought, it's Mozart...that deal of a fresh turkey he'd bought in December was rapidly decomposing in his trunk!

Etymology: Buy (To purchase something) & Bygone (past events to be put aside;well in the past; former) & Goner (a person in desperate straits; someone doomed)
