Yiddish. The type of boredom that makes you want to scream and jump up and down, as opposed to the type of boredom that puts you to sleep.
By the time I had answered the 200th multiple choice question without a break, I had such a case of shpilkis I wanted to scream and run all the way back to Rumania!
