Top Definition
Person who is sitting in a public place, usually unaware that s/he is taking up two desired spaces, and later dozes off, legs spreadeagled and head lolling from one side to the other, further preventing access to those spaces. "Quartertone" comes from a musical term for tones that fall "between the cracks" on a piano keyboard, common in Asia but infrequent in music on our side of the globe.
I couldn't get a seat on the bus because some quartertone was sitting between the divider on the bench and nodding off!
