This is a question Tightwads

There's saving money, and there's being tight: saving money at the expense of other people, or simply for the miserly hell of it.

Tell us about measures that go beyond simple belt tightening into the realms of Mr Scrooge.

The company I work for often has suppliers buy pizza/sanwiches etc for lunch for the staff on promotional days or after training. 1 of the guys is so tight, he takes any left over, home for his kids for tea. Its not like he is on a bad wage either.

My dad
used to do that for me as well. I wouldn't say it was tight. Waste not want not right?

I'm with scowners on this.
Fair enough, when food is laid on for training / meetings in my office and there is a lot left we send an email around for people to help themselves. Packing up leftover lunch for your kids is unbelievably tight.

"What's for tea, Dad?"
"Oh, just some scabby, six-hour-old pizza and sandwiches that nobody at work wanted after bronchial Martin coughed over them. Tuck in kids!"

Furkin rank.
