Sentence: "They've seen it all" I kept telling myself as I frantically added bromide to the hot tub and scrubbed at the scum ring along the top. My husband, while taunting me for my extensive preparations for the nervicecall from the spa guy, was spotted surreptiously hosing out the filter.

Etymology: Service call combined with nervous.
