Pronunciation: /hah-ras-hohl/

Sentence: Oscar had plenty of cars he needed to work on today, but for twenty minutes now he'd been stuck listening to some harasshole complain that the forty thousand mile warranty on his wife's car tires 'under normal driving conditions' should cover her repeatedly running over curbs, because, he claimed, that's how she normally drives.

Etymology: harass - to torment, as with troubles or cares; pester; persecute (Middle French, harasser "to harry") + asshole - a stupid, mean, or contemptible person, [or a donkey's poopchute, perhaps?] (Origin: 1350–1400; Middle English, arshole "anus")
