This is a question False Economies

Sometimes the cheapest option isn't the right one. I fondly remember my neighbours going to a well-known catalogue-based store and buying the cheapest lawnmower they stocked. How we laughed as they realised it had non-rotating wheels and died when presented with grass. Tell us about times you or others have been let down by being a cheapskate.

If there is any truth to this, it definitely wasn't Edinburgh University.
All the students there are richer than God.

More so than a Cambridge or Oxford? (I know nothing about England's education system)

Nah, they're the ones who aren't quite rich or bright enough to get to Oxbridge (or St Andrews).
Still mainly posh and loaded though.

At the risk of turning this week into pharmacy anecdotes, I used to do locum work in Edinburgh University pharmacy. This was back when there were prescription charges in Scotland, before the SNP's unsustainable referendum bribe they were scrapped.

"Ai've gort a prescription."
"I'll just ask you to fill in the back of it. Do you have to pay?"
"Neaurgh, ai deaurn't believe ai have to pay."
"I see you're over 18. Do you have a medical exemption, or are you claiming any benefits?"
"Oh, maybe ai do have to pay then."

Most of the chinless wonders could ask daddy to buy them a pharmacy.
