The phrase “Alligator Arms” (or Dinosaur Arms) is one my friends and I have used for years to describe our other cheap friends. Seems Urban Dictionary has the same idea. Everyone know this person. Either they fail to ever pick up the check when you go out or when it is their turn to buy a round of drinks, suddenly they are in the bathroom (or have already went home). Worse was a coworker I once had who would look at the check and figure out exactly how much he owed to the penny and put in exactly 15% for the tip. What he always failed to do was consider that his meal was taxed and the rest of us would always have to pick up his shortcomings. I learned to ask for separate checks after a while.
So any of you know some Alligator Arms? Are you one? Might do more of these cartoons so any suggestions (try to keep them clean) on other phrases you know or came across on Urban Dictionary?
