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.

After reading a few pages of this, I feel ill.

I may not be able to read the top ones at the end of the week as my disgust with some of my fellow residents of the planet may be too strong.

I mean, it's not like the QOTW hasn't had some stomach churning stuff before, but for some reason the mean-spirited small-mindedness of some of the people described is getting me all pissed off and ranty.

Tip well, pick up the tab for your friends when they're not expecting it, and let the small stuff slide. Over the long-term, generosity pays off much better than being cheap.

But it'll be next week by the time the international PayPal transaction clears my bank account and gets to yours, so it might not be worth it.

(If you're that hard up though, if you message me your email and convince me it's going to a good cause, you just might be in luck.)

Do you want the life history of a family friend who has been constantly shat upon by her own family, who over the years have had 10s of thousands out of her and still treat her like shit?

I didn't say be an idiot about it.

If those close to you don't return your generosity and treat you like shit, then stop being close to them and find some worthwhile friends.
