I was talking to Robert this morning on the way to work. As is often the case in the morning, my mouth was moving without my brain being fully engaged. Out popped a new word: “jealerous”  a combination of “jealous” and “generous.” I think it will be useful.

jeal·er·ous

(jĕl′er′əs)

adj.

1. A display of generosity calculated to stimulate envy or resentment in onlookers who do not benefit from it.
After the department manager moved on to another position, she sent an elaborate fruit basket to just a couple of the team– what a jealerous jerk!
