To lump

Tom has a created a new verb. When his clothing becomes bothersome he tells me it "lumps him". As in "lumpy" pockets are annoying. Or the "lump" from the seam in his socks bother him. I thought I'd save Webster the trouble by creating this entry for them.

lump verb lumped, lumping

1. causing discomfort or irritation, troublesome, causing annoyance These socks are lumping me. These pockets are lumping me

You should definitely submit this to the Oxfoed English Dictionary. http://www.oed.com/readers/research.html

The price of gas lately is lumping me!

That is an apt description of the problem. I can see and feel it clearly.

Bravo Tom! When there isn't a word that suits your circumstances, make one up!

I will get very lumped if the sound of the lawnmower next door wakes Ashley.
