metrohumanx

Created by: metrohumanx

Pronunciation: lo-PROD-uct-EEN-gull

Sentence: Sensing an evil presence nearby, Casper threw a spreadsheet over his Minesweeper game just in time to see the Library Director sweep past like the grim fog from a defiled graveyard. Slowly, a LOPRODUCTINGLE spread over him as every cell in his database quivered like a child caught in a lie. "I hope you're working on those usage reports." Pat said with a pseudofriendly voice that belied the hateful look in her cold grey administrative eye. "OH YEAH !" He stammered, only to regret his lack of a more creative reply. Casper's eyes never wandered from the monitor until she floated wraith-like into her office. Relieved that the moment had passed, he began to relax, but the LOPRODUCTINGLE returned like the rising tide of fear he felt in his coffee-filled bladder. An out-of-body sensation stupefied his mind as he catalogued all the woes this encounter could bring to his pleasantly mundane life. He minimized the screen which mocked his defiance and resumed play in the minefield of academic employment...

Etymology: LOw+PRODUCTivity+tINGLE=LOPRODUCTINGLE low: relatively small BS output.... productivity: a measure of useful work....tingle: to feel a ringing, stinging, prickling, or thrilling sensation

Perplexfiles

Created by: Nosila

Pronunciation: pur plecks fyles

Sentence: Suzy had that perplexfiles feeling again. What to hide away, what to look busy doing and what to let her boss see her working on. Her boss, Alvin, was on one of his rampages again. It was his idea of motivating and supervising his staff, he thought. He'd roam through the office, looking for flaws and then act all dramatic about what he found. Most of the staff kept out of his way when he went on these rants...bathroom breaks, lunch at 10:00 am or going to that doctor's appointment. Alvin was such a diva, like he was the one upon whom all productivity depended. Luckily for Suzy and staff, he only did it when he was sober, so it did not happen very often!

Etymology: perplex (bewildering, mystery,complcated) & files (a set of related records (either written or electronic) kept together) & for rhyming X Files (The truth is out there...I want to believe...)
