Verboticism: Trishcompactor



Created by: artr

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: trishkəmpaktər

Sentence: Patty thought her Smart car was a great idea when she first ordered it. Now, every time she looks at it, it seems to get smaller. It's even worse when she gets in and drives it anywhere. Wedged between a couple of 18-wheelers, it becomes a real Trishcompactor. Her 250-pound friend Noah refers to his as his Noahconstrictor.

Etymology: Trish (nickname for Patricia) + compactor (a device that compresses trash)

Maybe Trish & Noah should carpool. It might bring them closer.
