mall rat – rato de shopping
If you like to spend a lot of time at the mall, you are probably a mall rat. But if you like to spend a lot of time at the gym, working out your body to get fit, you are a gym rat. On the other, if your favorite pastime is going to the beach early in the morning and spend the rest of the day there, you are not a beach rat, you are a beach bum. A bum is a vagabond or a beggar (mendigo). Somebody who doesn’t work.
I went to the mall to get new shoes on friday and i saw the same mall rats pass by me at least ten times!
Look at those gym rats! They can name all their muscles, but I bet they couldn’t tell you what an adjective is!
Bum is also your ass or buttocks (bunda, bum-bum).
