Bipolarbear

Created by: Nosila

Pronunciation: bye pol lar bayer

Sentence: Janus was the Office Manager and many had thought she had been way too long in the same job. As they say, she was on the shelf, way past her sell-by date. The biggest problem for her staff was how to approach her, because of her fearsome mood swings. A person could go into her office one minute and be treated in a friendly and respectful manner. A few minutes later and Janus became the bipolarbear and attacked the person. It made life hard for the staff. That was why they took up a collection and hired a big game hunter to solve their problem.

Etymology: Bi-Polar (of or relating to manic depressive illness, one of the characteristics being extreme mood swings) & Polar Bear (Ursus maritimus)white bear of arctic regions)

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")

Schizophriendly

artr

Created by: artr

Pronunciation: skitsəfrendlē

Sentence: John’s boss thinks of herself as everyone’s buddy. She remembers birthdays, anniversaries and children’s names. She brings donuts on Mondays for staff meetings. The mood in the office is almost angelic. The atmosphere can change on a dime when the sales budget is the subject of discussion. She often turns schizophriendly and shrieks like a banshee at her sales staff when they dare to miss a budget benchmark.

Etymology: schizophrenic (a mentality or approach characterized by inconsistent or contradictory elements) + friendly (on good or affectionate terms)
