Help with Greek slang

Time: present day, contemporary fantasy novel
Location: a bar in neutral territory where the common language is English

I've searched Google multiple times for "greek slang," "greek slang dictionary," and even "greek insults". I've looked in Greek phrasebooks, but I either can't find any slang terms or I can't find the ones I need. I searched through previous postings in this community.

I'm looking for a word or phrase in contemporary Greek slang that a guy would use for a pretty girl he doesn't know and is being deliberately, but mildly, rude to. Examples of this in American English would be  "Babe,", "Sweetie," "Honey Pie," or in British English, "bird". This would be rude in English if the guy doesn't know the girl (which is true in my example, below). Slightly more vulgar slang might also work, but I don't want to use anything too vulgar ("bitch" is going too far).

Context: My MC approaches a man who is the relative of a person she is looking for and asks him for assistance with finding his relative. I'd like to use the slang term in the man's "why should I help you, honey?"-type response. He's quite the jerk.

Thanks in advance for the help.
