Slang for members of the Gujarati speaking people from the western most state of India. Gujarati are known throughout their country as being intensely business minded.
In America the Guju have overtaken the convenience store, cheap motel and other businesses which require little to no knowledge of customer service. (They occasionally venture into customer service oriented businesses and fields where product knowledge is essential and fail miserably)
The Guju-American is characterized by his refusal to let go of the superstitious beliefs and folk tales of his homeland (ex: drinking anything cold is responsible for 99% of all illnesses) and his stout refusal to assimilate into other cultures. He is too cheap to purchase deodorant and soap and will risk shame and his very integrity to save a penny on a purchase. He literally worships money. He smells bad and has no conception of personal space.
"You think you got the flue from drinking that cold slushie? What are you, a Guju?"
"Some Guju just bought the kwik-market down the street, and now the whole place smells like ass and curry."
"Did you get that raise and vacation time you were hoping for this year?" "Naw, man, by boss is a freakin' Guju!"
