Sentence: Pete and his girlfriend were the most annoying couple around. Pete (aka RePete) would restate everything anyone said in the form of a question perhaps to create time to ponder a response. ReBuffy was a contrarian, responding negatively to anything anyone had to say. She could find fault with the most innocuous statement.

Etymology: rebuff (reject (someone or something) in an abrupt or ungracious manner) + Buffy (a female name)
