Resignandshine

Created by: Nosila

Pronunciation: ree zyne and shyne

Sentence: Jake was so excited, he experienced resignandshine. After many years of toiling at a job he hated, for ungrateul bosses and a company who did not value him, he quit.

It was great to call the boss from Tahiti and tell him to stuff his crummy job. Yes, winning that big lottery turned his vocation into a vacation, permanently!

Etymology: Resign (quit voluntarily from a position or job) & Shine (experience a feeling of well-being or happiness, as from good health or an intense emotion)...Play on Rise and Shine

Oh dear! There, there. Here's a few points for you. Love, VerbMomtomist. P.S. Try usajobs.com (or course, if you are in the U.S. or fancy living there.) - purpleartichokes, 2007-05-04: 21:15:00

Those three points just made my day. I feel bad for abusing the game--it's just been a little bit beyond one of those days today. And I did think someone else might relate. But tomorrow, I'm off. :D CINCO DE MAYO! I have to keep soldiering, looking for new work, or better yet, looking for more education. Thanks again. PS It could be worse. My job is not dull, but what emotional rewards there are are a pyrrhic victory. - mplsbohemian, 2007-05-04: 22:39:00

I should also say that I went from discovering a job rejection to hitting Verbotomy in about three minutes' time, so I was very hot under the collar. - mplsbohemian, 2007-05-04: 22:41:00

So many good words already. I'll have to think about this after I exit MPOW, and head for the carpark. (Only vehiciousexiting going on at this time of the day) I wonder if there will be even a minor thrill as I'm only leaving for a long weekend.

I heard this one years ago but I can't let the day go without passing it on to people who like funny word combos - Today is Star Wars Day - "May the 4th be with you"!!
