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.

Cheapwad sister
I once commented that I would like a camera for my birthday. When my sister signed up for the Littlewood's catalogue sometime later, She chose for her 'Amazing _free_ gift' the camera, which she then gave to me for my birthday. It was the cheapest piece of plastic imaginable, and it went straight in the bin.

On a similar camera-birthday related theme (but not qotw), a few years later I commented that I wanted a _decent_ camera sometime. My parents recommended that since I had a job, I should buy one myself, which I did. For my birthday that year they gave me ... a camera, which was the second cheapest piece of plastic imaginable.
Fuckheads, the lot of them.
