Glossary of a BLOW OFF: Busybusybusy


Part of speech: verb

Definition: to blow someone off without saying you are blowing him/her off. You claim that you are so very busy, work/other stuff is crazy busy, and really, it’s quite overwhelming. Oh and did you mention that you are ridiculously busy? Then you hope desperately that the other person gets the hint and leaves you alone.

Usage: This guy I’m dating just busybusybusy-ed me. Bummer.
I couldn’t bear to tell him I didn’t want to see him, so I busybusybusy-ed him.

However, due to the laws of karma and social networking, an instance of busybusybusy-ing is usually accompanied by a facebook and/or twitter posting that shows the busybusybusy-er to be not so busy at all. Anger and hurt feelings usually ensue.

Maybe it’s better to be honest in the first place? Thoughts?
