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")

Futhermore, it is said that her fellow workers spoke of her managerial style as sybilitarian, with few willing to prophesize her next "mood".

Etymology: "SYBIL" a book turned into a movie(1976), tells the tale of a woman who had up to sixteen co-existing personalities & "AUTHORITARIAN."

Etymology: Psycho, crazy +Jefe, Span. boss
