Quasimotivator

Created by: Nosila

Pronunciation: kwazee mo tiv ator

Sentence: Perhaps it was his confusing management style that did it. You know, the way he'd be the caring, supportive leader one moment and in the blink of an eye, more often as not, he turned into an unpredictable, unapproachable monster. Perhaps it was the fact that he was very short, had a small moustache, freckles and had a slight hunch. Perhaps it was the fact that he must be slightly bi-polar and very lonely. Perhaps it was all this that made his staff call him the Quasimotivator. They had also called him (not to his face, of course): Attila the Hunch; Genghis Can/Cannot;The LittlerHitler;Dr.Freckle & Mr.Snide; Idi Imeanit; and Noseferatool. Luckily, managers like him were always blindly oblivious to the scorn and loathing they encouraged in their employees. One day, he came into work and was very nice to everyone, all day long. Everyone waited for the gears to change, but for the rest of the week, he was the epitome of kindness and compassion. His employees were puzzled and scared. One of them wanted to go up to him, shake him and ask him what he had done with their real boss. His secretary Mildred was very suspicious of this new found civility to the staff. When he was at lunch one day, she poked through his desk drawers until she found the clue to his good humor. Had he gotten a big raise? A Promotion? A Bonus? A Partnership? No, she found his new membership card. He had joined a Mood Swingers Club...no wonder he was always happy these days!

Etymology: quasi (As if; as though; as it were; in a manner sense or degree; having some resemblance to) & motivator(the psychological feature or force that arouses an organism to action toward a desired goal; the reason for the action; that which gives purpose and direction to behavior) & Quasimodo ...for rhyming purposes and(repulsive, tragic protagonist character from the Victor Hugo novel, "The Hunchback of Notre Dame" whose name means "almost human")...doesn't that name ring a bell?

Harumscaremployer

Created by: Tigger

Pronunciation: /har-em-SKAR-em-ploy-er/

Sentence: As with most women, Greg couldn't figure out his new boss, Carole. Yesterday she had yelled at him in front of his coworkers for using the last of the printer paper, and then this morning, when he needed her to sign his expense report, she seemed about to cry, sulking as if he'd done something wrong. She'd just stopped by his desk to talk though, and for a minute Greg just sat there feeling totally bewildered. She had been smiling and complementing him, and she had even invited him to lunch. He shook his head wondering why he'd accepted the invitation. Perhaps he ought to feign an illness, he thought, but decided that he was afraid of how his boss might react to that.

Etymology: Harum-scarum - reckless or unpredictable behavior (Origin: 1665–75; earlier harum-starum rhyming compound based on obs. hare "to harass" & stare) + Employer - a boss or manager (from Old French, empleier "involve, be connected with")
