Redoofus

artr

Created by: artr

Pronunciation: rēdoō-fəs

Sentence: Victor was such a redoofus that he spent 20 minutes punching the auto-opening key fob aimed at the wrong car. He did wonder who had put a bumper sticker for some random cause on his car and why he suddenly had a child's car seat in his car but still he persisted, moving to different angles and pushing the button harder. The only thing that broke his trance was the car owner getting in the car and driving away. That was the point at which he remembered that he was driving his wife's car because his was in the shop.

Etymology: redo (do (something) again or differently)+ doofus (do (something) again or differently)
