yerk, yerky, and yerkiest

I learned a new word today. To have a feeling of yerk is to experience a dread of all the work one has to do, as in "I'm feeling especially yerky today" or "I'm having a terrible feeling of yerk about going to this meeting." Both of these should be said in an especially whiney voice.

In other news, we all know that there are rules for how to behave in an elevator. Farting is generally not allowed. At least, not aloud. Such an occurrence could very easily contribute to one's yerk factor, as it did mine this morning. That, and the Coke machine refused my dollar so I had to get a Diet Pepsi instead. Yerk. Yuck. grrrr.

No. If I had, I would've given them shit about it.

But, isn't "yerk" the Scandinavian term for a person who cuts you off in traffic? Or fails to hold the elevator door for you? (Unless, of course, this personal has previously experienced an malodorous elevator ride with you...)

You aren't supposed to fart in elevators? Since when? Mikey

sharing their smelly air with you could be perceived as a kind gesture during this season of giving
