Top definition
A person who opens the same pantry or refigerator more than once within a short period of time with the notion of something delicious magically appearing, as if they missed it upon previous glances. Although they continue to follow the same pattern when hungry, pantroptimists are typically left with picking a mediocre item that they saw twenty minutes into rifling through a food storage location.
Ricardo: "Hey Pete why is Jim looking through the same places to find food?"

Pete: "I'm not sure, it's not like he mystically overlooked some tasty treat or something!"

Ricardo: "Seriously... fucking pantroptimist."
