Chato (male)/Chata (Female) (Shah-too)= Stubborn, Annoying, Boring

My husband taught me the word chato and it explained that it means boring or annoying. For example, you can say; you are being a chato. Now every time he is being annoying I say to him, “Chato!” One day he said, “I don’t like this, you using my own language against me.

  1. Chato/a can also be used to describe an unconfortable/awkward situation.

    Like, a brazilian person (o/) can think it’s awkward to tip people. You can say, Eu acho chato dar gorjeta (more or less translated).

    Although I also don’t understand why a single word means such different things.
