Quandary Resolution 531
sycophant, ancillary, homogeneous, vicissitude
Suffering the vicissitudes of a deep recession, the couple were desperately marketing their penthouse suite and had only recently downsized into a homogeneous and close community of simple village folk in darkest Norfolk; but having given summary notice to their ancillary domestics - retaining only housekeeper, butler, cook, and maid - the urban incomers were mortified to discover that, far from having won over the yokels with free beer at the gymkhana, they were marked down by pub regulars as sycophantic wasters - and crashing bores, to boot.
