Modemoperandom

Created by: Nosila

Pronunciation: mode dem oper an dom

Sentence: Cindy was a creature of habit. She hated changes and so she had problems keeping up with modern technology. Since she never kept her debit receipts, she never knew how much money was in her bank account. And since most of her bills were paid by auto deduction and all her revenue sources were paid by automatic deposit, she had even less clue. She'd swipe her card until it ran out of funds and still kept trying to get money from it, because she was unclear what "Cannot process transaction" really meant. Finally her friend suggested changing banks to help her with her modemoperandom issue. The new bank was called Blunt Bank. Now, whenever she had run out of funds, the message that came up was very simple: "Piss off, you're broke!"

Etymology: Modem ((from a combination of MOdulate and DEModulate) electronic equipment consisting of a device used to connect computers by a telephone line) & Random (lacking any definite plan or order or purpose; governed by or depending on chance;taken haphazardly)& play on Modus Operandi (an unvarying or habitual method of procedure)
