The act of losing something and doing without it for a long time, then having it again but forgetting to use it. Being spoiled we are used to having things. The opposite is true here with reverse spoilage as we get used to NOT having things.
I like to listen to music while driving in my car. 30 years ago my car radio was stolen, and so during the process of getting a new one, getting the money from the insurance company and picking out a replacement stereo, I got accustomed to driving around quietly. Once I got the stereo, I forgot to turn it on due to the reverse spoilage.
