Schizofrantic

Created by: artr

Pronunciation: skit-suh-fran-tik

Sentence: To say that Bill's boss doesn't deal with stress well is an understatement. Put a deadline in front of her and she becomes completely schizofrantic, alternately shouting encouragement and yelling at the crew to hurry up. By the time anything gets done, everybody is too exhausted, too frazzled to enjoy the accomplishment.

Etymology: schizophrenic (a state characterized by the coexistence of contradictory or incompatible elements) frantic (desperate or wild with excitement, passion, fear, pain, etc.; frenzied)
