Urman Dictionary



A problem that inflicts suffering and is then immediately solved.

Yorick gritted his teeth. He was late. He had no time to figure out why there was no hot water this morning - he’d just have to suffer through a cold shower so he could get ready for work.
Ten minutes later, just as he was reaching to turn off the shower and step out, he heard a rumble in the pipes and hot water started coursing out of the showerhead. He made an annoyed sound - it was hard not to feel personally mocked by the universe when it inflicted a vexpoint like that.
