Free Stuff

Here's my peeve with the chronic cheapo.  Example: A neighbor came over a few times a week to borrow this or that..usually food items.   Eggs, oil, butter, cooking spray..You get it.   This went on till I'd answer The door with, " what do you need?"    NO  way.  That had to stop. That's the kind of Borrowing I loathe.  I finally told her that I had 2 eggs for the week & I had cooking to do with them. After all her borrowing she's like miffed.   Please!  Then she came over for Tylenol..  Oh hell no.  It took me a couple of weeks to shut down my house of free samples she needed to" borrow. "   Ya try to be nice & ya get no respect..or your damn eggs back  ;)
