"Pizzled" a new word to describe the feeling you get when you're talking with someone and their Blackberry/phone ring and they answer it and just start talking to whomever. Personally I think it's rude. Especially the finger; ya know when a person puts their finger up to indicate they will be right with you while you're being pizzled. Maybe we could call that digit pizzled. And then there's facial fizzled and oh so many sub-catagories.

So it's suppose to be puzzled and pissed put together; pizzled. The tenant is why would they want to compromise a good conversation by answering the phone so fast. Apparently you're not interesting enough to have them let voice mail pick it up so the conversation isn't rudely interrupted. This puzzles you and makes you pissed.

Next time someone pizzles me off I will let them know I felt pizzled and then I can forget I was pazzled with a pizzle. pank-you.
