comment Why is money called “rhino”?
As a US English speaker, hole-in-the-wall, without context, inevitably defaults to mean an obscure food joint. So “rhino” in the OP sentence gravitates heavily toward the literal – as in a “rhino steak”. (In San Diego county hole-in-the-wall is a beach where high school kids go to drink and have sex – so on first blush it might mean … getting sex.)

comment Can I use the word “canceled” to refer to someone not attending to a gathering?
...per above a “no-show”, or “flaked out”, would be more scolding of incommunicative behavior.

comment What's the difference between “the one thing” and “the thing”?
The only difference is that in the second example you've extra-qualified it as one single thing. ..How is this a real question? Is this spam? ; )
