    скуряца

    What does this word mean? I hear it clearly and read some times (not many) in the net; it will be somewhat colloquial. The context is as follows:
    A wife refuses moving to another town and her husband (who is pro) says:
    "I coudn't wait a direct скуряца from you!".
    Thank you.

    Re: скуряца

    As for me, this is just a random set of letters

    I tryed to type «скуряца» in Google search, and all examples that I saw were misspeled «скурятся» («они скурятся» — they will ruin themselves by smoking), which is analog to «сопьются» («они сопьются» — they will become drunkards).

    In the situation you mentioned, husband can say «Я не собираюсь ждать твоего разрешения!» (I'm not going to wait your permission for that!)

    Re: скуряца

    There is no such a word in Russian. Your sentence has no any possible meaning with this word.

    The only meaning I can imagine is some illiterate slang derived from "курить" - "to smoke".
    Они скуряца - The smoking will make them down. / The smoking will finish them.

    Re: скуряца

    There are a number of words which may sound alike (in some forms) but no one seems to match the context.

    For example "курица" = chick/hen.
    "Россия для русских" - это неправильно. Остальные-то чем лучше?

    It-ogo, неплохая идея. Смотри:
    «I coudn't wait a direct скуряца from you!» -> «Я не собираюсь ждать твоих указаний, курица!»

    Re: скуряца

    «Но... Но кто же мог ожидать такую непредсказуемую, прямо истерическую реакцию от тебя! Я думал...»

    There is no anything similar to «скуряца» here...
