(pronounced VAY-geh-ree OR VAG-eh-ree)
Love this word. You often hear its plural form – vagaries – more often than its singular. Vagaries are unpredictable and inconsistent notions or actions. A.K.A.: erratic thoughts and acts.
Example: Not accustomed to the vagaries of their largest client, Suzanne felt continually frustrated and somewhat ineffective during her first six months working on the Dubai hotel project team.
