Interesting. It was Roy’s word. I had never heard of it. I googled it and found the RumChata liqueur. But I left it as Roy spelled it, separately.
In Spanish chata can be either a bedpan or a pickup truck. Weird.
In Spanish slang it can be someone with a small, flat nose, or a flat-chested woman.
In Portugese slang it can be a stubborn or picky or annoying person.
Words are fascinating things.
