Sentence: John loves to sisyfuss about how he is overworked. He likes to complain about his co-workers. He enjoys kvetching so much that he started a number of Facebook groups; My boss is an idiot, work sucks, and Bitchers Anonymous. It*s one of the few things that get him out from under his rock. It gives him a sense of power he doesn*t get at work. He was practically giddy the day he ignored his boss*s friend request.

Etymology: Sisyphus (in Greek mythology - the son of Aeolus, punished in Hades for his misdeeds in life by being condemned to the eternal task of rolling a large stone to the top of a hill, from which it always rolled down again) fuss (a protest or dispute of a specified degree or kind)

It works on so many levels - the fuss + the reference to Sisyphus, but also it has "sissy" in it.
