Attendshungetter

Created by: Nosila

Pronunciation: at tend shun get ter

Sentence: Alan was always an attendshungetter, whether at work in the office or at home. He could zone out and retreat into his own little fantasy world to avoid other people such as meetings,classes, door-to-door sales people, his mother-in-law, his wife and anything or anyone else he chose to. In his mind, he travelled far away, usually on a spaceship or he replayed his favourite movie scenes. Some people thought he could astral-project himself, because he could recall no details when he "came back". On Halloween night he hid in the house in the dark, with the porchlight on, watching from behind the drapes to avoid the trick or treaters. His mind was like his home. Like his Mother had always said... the lights were on but there was no one home.

Etymology: Attend (give heed (to);be present at (meetings, church services, university), etc.) & Shun (avoid and stay away from deliberately; stay clear of) & Getter (a person who acquires as a result of some effort or action)

When the **Big Boss** is on the prowl with productivity questions he employs his greatest power of all. He uses his stuporvision to look like he is deep, deep in thought. He is so good at it that **Mr. Bigpants** might even apologize for interrupting and return to the ivory tower.
