Coin-ism: "Flustrated"

flus·trat·ed
adj.
flustered and frustrated
I didn't make this one up. A co-worker was using it the other day to describe her state of agitation. (And apparently she's not the only one.) It seems to get it just about right.

    I like that one.
    I also like the last word on that thread, though my definition would differ:

    fla·gi·tat·ed
    adj.

    To be in such a state of upset
    or disturbance that one has an
    excess of flatus (gas).

    (I'm contacting Webster's right after this. I just know they'll want that one.)

  4. Sometimes a combo is the only thing that covers it. My coworker swore he'd seen "ingenuitive" in the dictionary. I let it slide because intuitive ingenuity makes a bit of sense.
