I just want to see if you guys think im being reasonable about this? Ok, first off I hate, absolutely cant stand cheap people. I find that the people that ive known in my life who are total cheapskates, I limit myself from them as far as friendship goes. Nothing against them, but I just cant stand this behaviour. It is degrading to the human form. Trust me, Ive known a lot of cheap people in my life, and one of my loser cousins has always been the biggest cheapskate that ive ever known. My cousin is so damn cheap, if he buys you something on loan or whatever, he expects to the exact penny paid back to him even if its 2 cents over the dollar. But I think this friend I work with might take the cake. Nothing against him, he is a really nice guy, we get along well and so on. But hes not someone I would hang out with outside of work simply because his attitude annoys me and pisses me off at times...and hes just embarassing to be around. For instance, this guy is so cheap he will never buy himself a proper lunch, unless it was free like if someone offered to pay for him and he would accept it no questions asked. So instead he just buys a cookie, or apple or whatever for lunch. Give me a break, this guy is a big dude and he thinks we are all stupid to believe an apple would fill him up for a 9 hr day? He keeps telling everyone, that hes just trying to save up for a house. Umm, ok understandable but there is a huge difference from saving money and being cheap about it....like going hungry purposely just so you dont have to spend money. You talk about anything, and all he says is "oh thats too much, it should be free.....or it should be $5, or $10" Who does this guy think he is? Nothing in life is free, and if you want something you pay it. He wears the same pants every single day and maybe 3 or 4 shirts - half of them looking like fruit of the loom sweatshirts from WalMart. And yet we are working downtown in one of the largest towers? Go and buy yourself some half decent clothes jesus. But he always says he has no time to......."uhh no youre just too fuckin cheap" Even when he buys things, he always asks for the biggest one. This one time he was buying a cookie for lunch, he didnt mention anything about wanting the biggest one...so the lady just hands him over one. As he pulls it out of the bag, he inspects it and starts whining because he got ripped off with a small piece. Hes like "Oh, pppfft of course she had to give me the smallest one" Give me a break, what are you....in kindergarten? THis was so embarassing, I didnt even want to be seen with this cheapskate in public. So my question is, do you think Im being inconsiderate or fair about how I limit my interaction with people who tend to be cheap.....and frankly dont want to be friends with them.
