Yup ultra-gross! I watched that show on TV called 'Cheapskates' a couple of years ago and one woman (even though she admitted they could afford it) used little squares of towels for the toilet and had a bucket next to the toilet for people to drop their 'used' towel in THEN she would launder them and set them back out again!! She and her husband had four kids!!! Ack ack ack!! It also showed the kids folding the freshly laundered 'toilet towels' and there were big 'skid' stains on them! Gross! Even guests had to use those towels!! Ack ack ack!!

She was a whackadoo! She also went out to the local soccer/rec parks and picked vegetation of the fields to make salads! Ooh it showed a dog taking a crap on the field while they were filming......yes she turned cheap into nasty for sure!!

Ewwwwwww! I've noticed people around here all think they, I guess, entitled to stuff, and want you to basically give everything to them. I've been trying to sell some goats for forever, and every one want them for like $30. I'm like, really? Geesh.

There is thrifty, which is good, then there is cheap which is bad. Yes Muppet I have watched those extreme cheapskates, picking food out of trashbins, come on now!

I've never really found anyone that cheap. Can't really imagine it!

One thing someone I am related to (through a family marriage) does that irritates me heaps is that she goes to this church place where they get donated food close to it's use-by in order to give to poor people. She goes there and helps out to get "first pick" and gets bags of stuff, but stuff that isn't nutritous - really cheap ice cream, biscuits etc and feeds them to her little kids.

Then she spends near $100 a week on cigarettes, and buys pricey and healthy food for herself. Drives me nuts seeing her kids eating bad food :(

At the moment I am working two jobs - one doing accounts/admin and the other is working as a bathroom attendant at a nightclub; it's not what I want to be doing, but its extra cash. I have a range of products people can "buy". I don't demand money, I do not hound people for money, and if people give me a "tip" it's simply by generosity on their part. I won't bore you with the details of the incredibly rude, ignorant, horrible cows I have to deal with. Nor, will I tell you all the stories and sights that have left me quite mentally scarred lol!

As for cheap; I have numerous people who will come in, use every bit of product I have, and either give me nothing, or else give me a a handful of coppers (1, 2, & 5 cent coins). I'm sorry... I don't want an handful of 1 cent coins anymore than the next person.. infact I would rather somebody give me nothing than a handful of coppers. I also get the IOU's "I'm sorry, I've used such and such, I have no money on me but I will bring it into you next time!". Yup, would you go into a shop, buy a can of coke and tell the person behind the till that?!

Stop for a minute, open your mind, learn. You may not agree with what I say, I may not agree with what you say but we will both learn something new.

^^^ I always tip the ladies room attendant, If she hands me a towel or even if she just wipes the sink after the person on front of me, she always gets at least a dollar.
I might be cheep in other areas, but in the service industry , never, being a waitress and bartender for years teaches you to be a good tipper.

I have two jobs with two very large retail companies in a very rich area of Long Island. I won't name them for the sake of my job security but one is an enormous coffee chain (my main job) and one is an electronics chain. BOY you wouldn't believe the personalities in this place. They wrote the BOOK on cheap. At the coffee shop people forge coupons or reproduce them even though it clearly states that we don't take reproductions. They'll only give part of the order at the register and when they get their drink they'll ask for all the extra stuff they know we charge for. Even after we are like "okay no problem just let us know when you place your order so we can get that right the first time." One girl literally did it every day until our manager confronted her about it and she didn't come back for two weeks... And then did it again. Or they'll flat out throw a hissy fit to force my hand and get their drinks for free. At the electronics place we have people demanding refunds on years old items, asking for free stuff because a bad previous experience at a different store... The list goes on. The fact that these are grown adults throwing fits like two year olds KILLS me.
