Discommodius ~ A to Z Challenge: Day 4

No, this is not the lack of a toilet-like structure, as some might surmise based on the root-word.

I know, it was like I could see into your soul just then.

The actual definition of discommodius is as follows: inconvenient.

This is somewhat related to your original thought process, especially if you have recently consumed a 52 ounce cherry vanilla Dr. Pepper from Quick Trip.  However, it has much farther reaching implications. It reaches all the way to my cubicle, in fact..  It is the definition of my eight-hour hiatus from life Monday through Friday.

I try not to be a complainer, I really do. I like my job.  I like what I do, I like the company I work for, I like my boss(es), I like my coworkers, I like my paycheck, and I like my benefits package.  I just feel like I could be a more complete person if I could multitask a little more.  I am able to execute my duties and do several loads of laundry at the same time.  I have the ability to run the dishwasher while I work.  It is possible for me to conference call while Wet-Jetting the hardwoods.  Yet, to date, I have not come up with a plausible argument convincing my employer that my position is 100% telecommutable.

Utterly discommodius.


  1. I really like this word!

    Good luck getting your employer to let you work from home! :-)

  2. I am corybantic to find your blog! I'm looking forward to learning 26 fabulous new words for my vocabulary.
