    Specific terms that do not have english words but should

    This is a thread for a situation or term that doesn't have a word but should.

    For example there aren't words for:
    -When all the ingredients of a hamburger slide out as you're trying to eat it
    -When you sit down and the chair is already warm from somebody else's butt
    -When you're walking in the opposite direction of somebody you know and you're not sure if you're supposed to nod or wave or what.

    Also if there are words for these things in other languages let us know.

    Maybe but they obviously didn't stick so don't act like you're some sort of linguistic trendsetter.

    There should be a word for when you make up a word for something but it doesn't stick so you don't get to be a linguistic trendsetter.

    If someone is like that, they could be called Utrensious.
