    glassophobia

    "I can't, sir," answered the butler. "My young lady has ordered the glass dog to bark whenever you call here. You'd better look out, sir," he added, "for if it bites you, you may have glassophobia!"
    I know it's sarcastic but could you advise me a word in place of it for my translation?


    can I say glass rabies? :P
