A psychiatric medical condition in which a person is repulsed by working or being employed. As a result, s/he makes excuses to avoid working for a living.

One with Work Aversion Disorder (WAD) may appear to be lazy, immature, irresponsible, or to have a poor work ethic, but that is not the case. S/he is actually psychologically unable to seek or perform employment. Most of these people are able to do work-like activities outside of the context of employment.

Work Aversion Disorder is caused by various mental illnesses, including anxiety disorder (like agoraphobia or panic disorders), depression, obsessive-compulsive disorder, or post-traumatic stress disorder.

People with Work Aversion Disorder usually do not admit they have work aversion, but make excuses not to work, such as physical illness, external obstacles, religious beliefs, or non-paying obligations in their lives, and often turn to extreme measures to obtain money needed such as draining savings, getting into debt, looking for easy money, begging, gambling, or in the worst cases, illegal activity.

It is common for people with Work Aversion Disorder to lose friends, marriages to dissolve, and family members to disown victims.

It is estimated that about 1-2% of the population worldwide has Work Aversion Disorder. The rate is equal in all countries, races, cultures, and genders, though it only has been recognized as a disorder since the 1980s, in most cases, it goes unnoticed.
My son has Work Aversion Disorder. He once had a full-time job and was fully self-supporting, but now he doesn't work at all. He is behind on all his bills, his house is in foreclosure, and his car was recently repossessed.

At first, I was telling him to go out and get a job. I then realized that would not solve the problem. He really needs help. He has an illness, and he needs to be treated.

A public bus (usually an intercity route) that has no bathroom and that goes for a significant amount of time (say an hour or longer, sometimes several hours) without making any stops to allow passengers to use the restroom.

These buses are called pooping buses because not everyone can hold it in for the long ride, leading some passengers to go in their pants.
When riding on a pooping bus, wearing a diaper is recommended.

While driving, one of the following acts:

- When a light turns green (with no arrow), quickly making a left turn (or right turn where driving is on the left side) before the first cars in the opposing traffic, which have the right-of-way, have a chance to go.

- Use of a lane designated for a specific purpose, such as turning, to pass other stopped or slower cars.
You are "me-firsting" or "me firsting" if:

1.) You get a good jump just when the light turns green to make a left. This depends on the cars about to go the other way that you would otherwise have to wait for getting a slower start.

There is also a move called a Pittsburgh left where the opposing driver allows the motorist to make the left turn as a courtesy.

2.) If there is a left-turn, right-turn, exit-only, or temporary merge lane, and you plan to go straight, but there are more cars going straight than turning, and the special lane is clear, making use of one of these lanes to pass and get ahead of other cars is called me-firsting. This could take place during a traffic jam on a highway or when the light will not allow enough time for all the cars to proceed through on a single cycle, but will allow the "me-firster" to do so if able to pass.

The lane used as such to the motorist is called a me-firsting lane.

In any of the above examples, it is easier to "me-first" in front of or before a truck or an older car with a slower engine.

The laws vary in every place as to what is allowed, and what punishments can be when laws are broken.

A neurological condition in which a patient suffers sporadic outbursts of anger starting in one's middle age.

Sufferers are known to be calm throughout their lives and never get angry until some time in their 40s thru 60s. This all ends with an outburst of verbal anger, typically directed against those known to the patient, in which victims feel threatened.

After first outburst, a few years will typically pass until the next outburst. Intervals between outbursts will divide in half from then on, until patient becomes unmanageable and must be institutionalized.

There is no known cure or treatment for this condition.
