Shoplefter

Created by: silveryaspen

Pronunciation: shop left her

Sentence: Carry never missed a chance to shop. It was always such a pity, there was that little bit, she left in the bottom of the cart. Unlike the shoplifter who took things without paying for them, Carry paid for things without taking them ... She was a chronic shoplefter!

Storgot

Created by: memyselfandbo

Pronunciation: Store-got

Sentence: As instructed by his wife Gail, Sam dutifully picked out a gallon of 2% milk for the baby and was about to check out when he noticed a large display of spicy mustard at the end of aisle 12. He did his best to prevent drooling on the linoleum as he thought of pairing the mustard with his food of choice, bratwurst. He ran down the aisles to pick up some brats and buns and went back to the glorious mustard aisle. With his four items bumbling in his arms, he approached the cashier who rang up his items. She placed the brats, buns, and mustard in one bag and the milk in another. With firing up his grill on the brain, Sam grabbed the treasured bag with glee but storgot the milk. Only when he saw Gail's angry glare did he remember why he went to the store in the first place. Sam's heart sank as he realized he'd be on diaper duty for the next two weeks. And it sank even lower as he got back in the car, prolonging his bratfest even further.

Etymology: Store: a place that sells milk, brats, buns, beer, and other stuff you can eat. Forgot: to not remember.

Forgetmeshop

Created by: splendiction

Pronunciation: for get me shop

Sentence: Hal decided the best way to help Lily avoid to forgetmeshop was to attend all outlets, malls, boutiques and markets with her. He would offer her brazen reminders of the time she’d left a posy of brightly-coloured shopping bags at the store, along with their daughter Violet. (Lily’s excuse was that she left the child to tend the flowery bags while she decided whether or not she really needed the goods...or was she simply bingbuying)? Hal would have none of it! He diligently tended to her, offering encouragement and water, hoping she’d remember her items. One day, he would get her a bouquet of Forget-me-nots to celebrate the happy shopping trips when they arrived home together remembering their purchases.

Etymology: From the flower: "Forget-me-not" and shop.

Payaway

mrskellyscl

Created by: mrskellyscl

Pronunciation: pay-away

Sentence: When Roger got home and looked in the back of the minivan he realized that the groceries he bought for poker night with the boys were left behind, probably in a shopping cart in the store's parking lot. Chances were good that they were gone. The guys would certainly get a laugh at him. He'd have to come up with a believable story to save face. "I'll tell them that I bought the stuff on payaway," he thought, "that will buy me enough time to get back to the store."

Etymology: pay: purchase, buy + away: gone (wordplay on layaway -- to pay for things over time)
