Sabottleur

Created by: splendiction

Pronunciation: SA bott le eur

Sentence: A sabottleur is a person known to cause sabotage with almost-empty bottles or containers. The nearly empty bottles build up in large quantities in the fridge. The collection will stink, occupy space and needlessly remain chilled. The sabottleur’s justification may be that leaving a small quantity is better than nothing. Often the sabottleur’s main motive is to avoid taking the time to recycle the container.

Etymology: From saboteur (a person who causes harm) and bottle.
