Too Complex for Bathroom Walls

Hey! Yes, you. You've been in this place for two hours and have only had one small coffee. MOVE IT CHEAPSKATE! People are waiting.

Think this person is pissed offoff (angry) about something? It's not because the person they hate spent two hours in the bathroom. A cheapskate is someone who hates to spend money. This small cafe is very popular with Tufts students. But it doesn't have a lot of seating - or at least not enough for this person to sit down. Poor college students often study there for hours without spending much money.

Someday Cafe, Davis Square, Somerville, MA, 2002
