    Those people don’t have a “Glossary”……

    I thought glossophobia was the fear of photos that don’t have a matte finish.

    It’s strange that Horace’s “Horse, M.D.” fantasies always involve him being a physician, while his proclivity for joining support groups of all kinds suggests that he might make a good psychologist…

    I’ll just gloss right over this one.

    that, or the fear of house paint that is gloss or semi-gloss…

    .
    good analysis.
    .
    Unfortunately, the Monty Python sketch with mr gumby going to the doctor comes to mind. “What’s the matter, mr. gumby?” “My brain hurts!”
    .
    er… Being a horse, I guess he would have to be Mr. Pokey, come to think of it.

    But being a Horace, of course, he can talk to Mister Ed.

    My whole department was ordered to attend a team-building day at a local hotel. We started by standing upand introducing ourselves, and as the introductions neared one tableful of coworkers, a young woman at that table bolted from the room in tears, and didn’t return for the rest of the day. I can laugh at this cartoon, Samson, but a cartoon about my own phobia (grasshoppers) might not have me grinning.

    Photo paper, house paint, anything glossy….and the fear of public “speakERS” i.e. politicians!

    And all this time, I thought it was the fear of sparkly unicorns

    Does this happen if the meeting is help via Skype?

    Yes…and he (Mister Ed) once dreamed that he was a doctor (his ‘shingle’ read: “Dr. Ed: Ears, Eyes, Nose, and Tail!”).

    You too, eh? The little grasshoppers never bothered me, but the 3" long (and larger) yellow & red Lubber grasshoppers in south Florida were a very different (shudder) story… :-(
