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.

Tightarse companies and Nazi account ladies.
Adding to pounana's and Scooby Don't's company's antics – together with my own post earlier today.

Also being on the receiving end of the ball busting accounts ladies – up holding the tightarse company policy and saving all the travel budgets for the bosses first class ticket.

I remember having a particularly tough Biz-trip tour. Finland, Norway and Denmark in 5 days installation of said Networking kit and tested. I picked out some Water from the mini-bar in my room as I had just got off the train in turn from the airport – arrived straight from Oslo, Norway. Thought nothing of it. When I got back and claimed my expenses I had query about the water. Basically I hit the roof about this and claimed a basic human need for water. But, they were not moving on this and it should be part of the Diem they told me.
However, they did fail to notice the hard core Scando porn on all my hotel bills. The hotels were kind enough to list this as “Business connection package” or “internet” – which was always extra.

After that moment turb0t’s and my business trips always tried to include “Internet” on our hotel bills whether it was included or not. And getting hotel to list everything in the local language of the said county was a bonus too. This made the lazy accounts lady fuct off – which was a secondary bonus.
