h ex it - The act of muttering a final expletive when leaving a particularly frustrating event.

e.g., The farmer looked down at the cracks in his gnarly, old hands. This was the third time he had been sent to the back of the line for either not having the right form or for filling in the wrong information. He had driven in 40 miles to the DMV office this afternoon, having forgotten all about his driver's license until Cindy, his wife, reminded him that today was the last day to renew the registration and it was too late to do so by mail. "May I have your attention, please?" the stern faced woman in the sunflower dress behind the counter announced to the crowd. "Your local DMV office is open weekdays from 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. It is presently 5:05 p.m. This facility is now closed until tomorrow morning." "Gosh DURN it!" said the farmer as he turned to h ex it out the door.

habitual aspect - (n.) a verbal aspect (as opposed to a tense) which means that a particular action occurs (or occurred) regularly. Oddly, perhaps, this appears to be the default interpretation of English verbs appearing by themselves without aspectual markers, such as "have" or "be -ing." So, for instance, nobody answers "what are you doing?" with "I eat." Everyone (who speaks English natively) says "I am eating" because that means "at present." Saying "I eat" (generally) means "I eat every day, or whenever noon rolls around, or when I'm nervous" or something. I have labelled this the habitual aspect, as opposed to the perfect or progressive (or aorist) aspects. (This becomes rather complicated in the preterit, but the explanation is rather complicated and certainly too big for entry here.)

e.g., perfect aspect: we have eaten [already].  progressive aspect: we are eating [right now].  habitual aspect: we eat [as a general rule].
