metrohumanx

Created by: metrohumanx

Pronunciation: KRON-ih-KYU (CHRONIQUEUER, CHRONIQUEUED)

Sentence: Doctor Terwilliger couldn't wait for retirement. After a grueling session with his shrink, he realized that he he had violated his hippocritic oath. When Doctor T saw the CHRONIQUEUE in his waiting room, he wished he'd installed that drive-up-window long ago. Glancing at the assorted afflictions, he entered his inner office, bolted out the back door and left prescriptions under the windshield wipers of each patient. The good doctor floored his Mercedes in an effort to reach the golf course on time, where he'd meet his investment banker and analyst to discuss his GOD complex, Swiss bank account and how to eke more bloodwork out of his nurse without raising her pay.

Etymology: CHRONIc + QUEUE = CHRONIQUEUE.....CHRONIC:marked by long duration or frequent recurrence, always present or encountered, constantly vexing, weakening, or troubling.....QUEUE: a waiting line especially of persons or vehicles,a sequence of messages or people held in temporary storage awaiting attention; French, literally, tail, from Old French cue, coe, Latin cauda, coda (1748).

Waitingruined

Created by: Nosila

Pronunciation: way ting roo ind

Sentence: Okay, I have been waitingruined. I am normally a patient (pardon the pun) person, but I draw the line at having to sit in cramped, stuffy quarters with walking contagions for hours on end. This is the day I forgot to bring a novel (which I can usually start and finish in one wait session). Most people can start and end "Gone With The Wind" while awaiting the obstetrician. That is why so many babies are named Rhett, Scarlett, Melanie & Ashley! The magazines are ancient, sneezed on and would give CSI enough forensics to call the CDC in Atlanta. Why do doctors make appointments, when they are just approximate (plus 2 hours) timeframes? Wouldn't it be great to see statistics on how many patients expire from or as the result of lengthy stays in waiting rooms??? As a result, I make a long list before I go in of medical complaints, so that I get my money's worth while I am there!!

Etymology: waiting room (where you languish for hours on end with contagious peiople, just to see a doctor for a nano-seconmd who says, keep an eye on it and come back next week!) & Ruined (wrecked, destroyed, rendered useless)
