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.

just remembered this one.
Years and years and years ago, the National Lotterry in the UK would have been going for about a year or so, and I won £10 by skillfully matching 3 numbers. On the exact same weekend my cousin won a thousand pound on a scratchcard version and my brother-in-law won quite a chunk of money ("more than 5k, less than 10K" is all he'd say) on the Spanish lottery (he was a HGV driver and lived there.)

Now in the interest of family love and harmony- I offerred to share my £10 with all the family if they did the same. Did they? Course not- tightwads.
