Top definition
A person who is not only cheap, but also foists his cheapness on others in irritating ways.
The dude who brings TWO PBRs to a BYOB party and then drinks six pilsners is a cheapass. This is probably the same guy who doesn't want to evenly split the bill at a restaurant because your food cost $33 and his only cost $30.

A person who, regardless of income, finds it necessary to pay less than his or her fair share, if anything, or lacks interest in doing activities that cost money.

Such individuals may resort to nonsensical excuses that do not justify why he or she doesn't want to do something (such as go to the movies) that may potentially cost money.

He or she may also simply carry credit cards on a night out when they know the activities during the night will cost actual cash and not plastic. This is to avoid paying for their share and being able to fall back on, "I only have my card." They will sometimes ask you to spot them and they'll pay you back later, but you know that won't happen.

A simple solution to prevent from being seen as a cheapass is to merely say, "hey man, I really don't have the money right now, do you mind if we do something else?" Being honest is something that people will respect. Also, cheapasses generally think they're clever with their words and that nobody is figuring out that it's because they don't have any money (or don't want to spend it). However, people can usually detect when somebody is being a cheapass and tend to make fun of said person behind their back because it's annoying that they won't just be honest.

Another solution to prevent from being a cheapass is to always make sure you pay money back to people you owe it to. Nothing is worse than when somebody owes you money and they continue to not pay you back and give you excuse after excuse as to why they don't have it, yet you see them spending money on a girl or other stupid things. It is best to stop being friends and/or associating with said cheapasses.
Joe: Hey man do you want to go see a movie?
Sam: Nah man all the movies out look terrible. (Even though he was just talking about how good movie ___ looked)
Joe: Oh... well do you want to go bowling?
Sam: No man I just went a few months ago.
Joe: Why does that mean you can't go now?
Sam: Because dude I don't want to. What the hell.
Joe: Well do you want to do anything?
Sam: There's nothing to do. Maybe you can just come sit at my house.
Joe (in his mind): Damn cheapass...

Often confused with "financially responsible" by stupid materialistic people who are extremely irresponsible with money, are likely in shitloads of debt, and have rich parents to sponge off of.

Examples of Cheap Asses:
Washing and re-using things such as paper towels, glad bags, trash bags, disposable razors, other disposables etc.....
Buying a beat up $400 clunker and driving it for 20+ years
Buying that wimpy single-ply butthole scraping dingleberry making sand paper, because it cost a whole dollar less than normal TP.
Stealing all the napkins, sporks, and ketchup packets from a fast food restaurant to take home.
Using the same tea bag/coffee filter for months at a time.
Showing up to a BYOB party with a 4 pack of steel reserve (or some other foul ass cheap beer typically consumed by alcoholics), bumming the good beers from friends all night, and leaving with said 4-pack.
Constantly "forgetting" wallet to get out of paying restaurant bills when eating out with friends.
Not tipping the waitress, even though the service and meal was satisfactory.
Moron: "Why can't you borrow me $5200 so I can pay off my credit card bills and support my gambling addiction? You're such a cheap ass!"
Financially responsible "cheap ass": "I won't borrow you any of my hard earned money because you'll probably end up blowing it some stupid useless shit you saw on TV, like a designer anal massager, instead of putting it towards your credit card bill anyway. Since you're unable to pay your bill, how can I trust that you'll even pay me back? Can't you get your daddy to pay it off, since he's loaded?"
Moron: "Nope, my cheap ass daddy finally got tired of my bullshit and cut me off."
Financially responsible "cheap ass": *palms forehead*

One who helps him/her self to anything that someone else paid for and hides everything he/she bought.

Example; Invited to a dinner, eats more than their share and don't mind going back and taking the last serving or ask if they can take the rest home with them.

Staying with someone for a few days or weeks. Use the Hosts toiletries when they have their own.

Comes up with a cock-mania story about their vehicle and ask to use yours. Burns out the gas and does NOT replace it.

When you finally see you are being taken advantage of, you stop making things available for them. Then they start calling you a "tight ass".
