I’m not cheap when it comes to other people. I pay people right away if I owe them money. Even if someone asks me out and pays for a date, I make it a point to pay the next time. Always. That’s my rule.
I am cheap when it comes to me. I eat breakfast at work (thanks to the communal oatmeal and cereal in our kitchen). I bring my lunch. I don’t eat out as much as I used to.
I do some really kooky things that I’ll document here on my blog.
Kooky thing #1 is that I use an old parking ticket as a decoy so that the meter maids overlook my car. So far, it works. Ever since I’ve put it underneath my windshield wiper, I haven’t gotten another ticket. In fact, I actually drive around with the parking ticket. I never take it out. Everything thinks I’m crazy, but…this ain’t LA. I don’t care about my car!
