Shopabrawlic

Created by: rombus

Pronunciation: shop - a - brawl - ick

Sentence: John had a really nasty problem that he couldn't seem to control. He often got into intense arguments with shop clerks and check-out personnel in stores over everything from the prices of goods to their functionality. His shopabrawlic behavior was out of control and he couldn't seem to help himself. He felt so much better after an argument that he often bought things just for the thrill of the argument.

Etymology: The word shop (which means to purchase or look for) is combined with brawl (to quarrel angrily or disruptively). This is also kind of smashed in with alcoholic to denote an addiction to the behavior.

Etymology: harass - to torment, as with troubles or cares; pester; persecute (Middle French, harasser "to harry") + asshole - a stupid, mean, or contemptible person, [or a donkey's poopchute, perhaps?] (Origin: 1350–1400; Middle English, arshole "anus")
