Psychojefe

Created by: arrrteest

Pronunciation: si-ko-heff-ay

Sentence: Mark knew that working at Januscorp seemed a bit dubious, not knowing what face to put on when going to work. The founder, he later came to find, named the business after his wife, for whom Mark worked for. On the face of things, she seemed quite a personable character. However, once he got to know her, he could not figure out if she was a raving lunatic or moody creative type. He would often wonder if she would be a sane collaborative boss when he walked in, or the the "Pyschojeffe from Hell."

Etymology: Psycho, crazy +Jefe, Span. boss

I've worked for one. Believe me, Jekyll and Hyde had nothing on her.
