Cultural note: In Mexico, it is a common gesture to touch one’s elbow or say the word codo to describe a person who is frugal and tight with their money. Literally, codo means elbow. This is the same as calling a person a cheapskate. For example, if your buddy rushes off to the bathroom just as the check is arriving to avoid paying, you may wish to call him codo.
