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.

Thrifty Tramps.
A tramp died last month in the stairwell of a multistorey car park down here, and he was one of the most popular vagrants (with other vagrants) in the city.

This caused a massive vagabond pilgrimage to the stairwell, with about thirty of his hobo bretheren coming to pay tribute.

They spent all week begging and busking in the streets, and going around to local businesses asking for donations for their fallen gentleman of the road. A few of these shops gave generously as they were quite fond of the drifter, so I was wet with anticipation to see what they were gonna purchase as a tribute.

Dandelions and daisies shoved in a collection of Tennants and Special Brew cans.
