Viletone

Created by: Nosila

Pronunciation: vial tone

Sentence: Helen worked at the Help Desk of her company's IT Dept. Hah, Helen thought,Help Desk was an oxymoron of a name for it. She went out of her way to ensure that Help Desk was an ironic choice of name. Whenever those moronic employees would call about their petty issues, she'd snidely say things like: "Is your computer plugged in? Did you turn it on yet? How can you be so stupid as to not know the terminology? Call us back when you get a clue!" She was always cutting people off, swearing at them and taking out her bad moods by being a viletone with the callers. Her co-workers cringed when she answered the phone and they felt pity for the poor slob on the other end of the line. That was until one day when she picked the wrong client to offend. After viletoning him for ten minutes, Helen was left speechless to find that she had bad-mouthed her boss. Bill Gates told her that she would never have to worry about hating her job again...

Etymology: vile (thoroughly unpleasant, morally reprehensible,nasty, offensive,despicable) & tone (the general atmosphere of a place or situation and the effect that it has on people,the elastic tension of living muscles, arteries, etc. that facilitate response to stimuli) & dial tone (sound given by telephone exchange to show line is clear to make a call)
