Squeezychair

Created by: OZZIEBOB

Definition: n., A feeling of discomfort, common while sitting on a plane or train, created by the sense that you are about to be decapitated by your fellow passengers who are tilting aggressively towards you. v. To sit in a very small space, which seems to be getting smaller.

Pronunciation: SKWEEZ-ee-chair

Sentence: As the 500lb Sumo wrestler quaked tectonically to and fro in the seat immediately in front of his, Bob, affright with feelings of crambivalence and queasychairness, focused firmly upon the likelihood of being squeezychaired, or the slim hope of having a fabulous fortnight in The Phillippines.

Etymology: SQUEEZYCHAIR: blend of squeezy: to be press forcibly together; compressed, tightly packed together & CHAIR: a seat, esp. for one person, usually having (four) legs for support and a rest for the back and often having rests for the arms. CRAMBIVALENCE: blend of CRAM: to press something into something else; jam or cram beyond the normal comfortable capacity, as on a plane or train & AMBIVALENCE: similar conflicting feelings; mixed feelings of uncertainty or emotion, as between safety & unsafety.

Wonderful word for any air line seat ... or any public seat! Slips into the mind and stays with a smile then t slides off the tongue so nicely!
