25 Habits of Cheap People that Annoy the Rest of Us


Before I begin, being “cheap” and being “frugal” are too different things. Frugal folks, though they tend to be just as annoying in some cases, consider the “value” of items when purchasing. Cheap people are just a pain in the ass, but I have cheap friends and I love them anyway. Here goes!

1. When the check comes at dinner, yelling out “I only had….” and proceeding to list the water and whatever appetizer you ordered.nervously-drinking-water

2. Coming to a social gathering, contributing a bottle of alcohol to the night’s festivities, then when the night is over, taking it back home with you.Kevin-Hart-Really-GIF

3.Inviting friends to go shopping and spending the entire time in the sale section of every storetumblr_m6lr33Ijen1rzgx8po1_500

4. Or commenting that everything is too expensivetumblr_mk2q07eQhG1s7dgwgo1_400_zpsfc28f9bb

5. Or commenting that you “would never spend that much on” whatever it is that your friend is about to purchasekim-kardashian-testing-out-la-florists

6. Driving on E while convincing the passengers that “I know my car”5a78b1a2d882e1e92993870d3c00f9e8-guy-is-in-love-with-his-car

7. Inviting people over during the summer and refusing to put the AC on when you can “Just open the window” Note: If it’s hot outside, then the air you are letting in will be, you guessed it? Hot too!1388990714720

8. Which brings me to driving with the windows down to preserve gas. Friendly Tip: The AC takes up more gas than driving with the windows down thing is FALSE. When you drive with the windows down, the air getting into the car slows it down so you have to exert more pressure on the gas to go faster resulting in you eating up about the same amount of gas as if you would have driven with the AC.airplane

9. Never offering to put in for gas, tolls, pay to park, etc.yNKR9ou

10. Never doing any of the things above, but always needing a rideshow-me-the-money01

11. Go to cookouts all of the time, but never bring anythingdinner-table-reactions

12. When you’re out with friends and expenses come up, likecab fare, using the excuse “I would, but I don’t have any more cash on me”oops

13. At dinner, talking about how horrible the service is so it will come to no one’s surprise when you don’t tipYou-Turn-Your-Nose-Up-Parents-Who-Ask-Playdates-After-School-Because-Your-Child-Fully-Booked

15. Or using someone else’s tip to make up for your lack of tip1390000070260

16. Bringing full course meals into the movie theater and making tons of noise trying to get it out of your bag, unwrap up, move it around and everything else to call attention to your grocery bag full of food

17. Continuously saying you’re “so hungry”  so that someone will offer to buy you foodtumblr_m0amp4Nji41r3ty02o1_500

18. Standing in the grocery line FOR EVER because you’re in a stare down with the cashier who won’t honor your coupon28rcoox

19. Just couponing in general!4PEcf

Confession: I’m actually kind of interested in trying this, but there should be a separate line where couponers can wait in line for hours together as not to disrupt the rest of the universe.

20. Purchasing fake designer items because you “simply can’t justify spending that much on a handbag”


21. Critiquing those who actually did “spend that much on a handbag”


22. Going out and continuously asking “is this on sale?”


23. Always asking for someone’s Netflix or Hulu Plus login


25. Conveniently being “busy” whenever invited to a birthday outing to avoid having to buy a gifttumblr_mesl222Jcx1ql5yr7o1_400

12 Reasons Why I Won’t Fill Out A Job Application

 and There’s a Pretty Good Chance Other Milennials Won’t Either

As a not-so distant college graduate, there came a time when I was filling out almost 50 job applications every couple of days! Needless to day, Indeed became my very best friend.


I would scour pages and pages of positions for hours, find a position I thought was fitting, and “click wherever” to apply. Well, in a lot of cases, I wouldn’t go past this point from a number a reasons.

1. Company culture is EXTREMELY important to me. What is the company saying about their brand? Are they passionate? Up beat? Innovative? If not, I sense impending boredom and i’m on to the next one.

2. The application process is TOOOOOOO LOOOOOOOOOONG! I upload a resume in the beginning then have to go through an entire application process to input the SAME information! It feels like a futile and archaic process that takes up A LOT of time, so yet again, I keep it trucking.

3. Now comes the Company Website! Do they have some sort of “Meet the Team” page? I like to see who I would be working with and whether or not any of them look like me. I like to see diversity, it makes for an immersion of cultures, ideas and creative perspectives.

4.PAY! A lot of companies exclude this and I understand, because pay is often based on education and experience. But, I need at LEAST a salary range! – That’s fair.

5. Back to the company site again, are they giving back? Is the company involved in the community? Do they push corporate responsibility? Are employees volunteering? If not? Red flag! I’m over you!

6. GLASSDOOR! Oh yes! This is my absolute FAVORITE measuring method, because I want to know WHAT THE EMPLOYEES ARE SAYING ABOUT THE COMPANY! Are they happy with the values? Is there work/life balance (Which isn’t of much importance to me now, but it may be later on down the line when I have kids and a family)? Are there growth opportunities? Hell, Are the employees even HAPPY?!

7. Glassdoor 2.0, What is the interview process like? Is it an exchange between two parties uncovering if the applicant is as much of a fit for the company as the company is for the applicant? Are the interviewers engaging? Do they interview twice, once on phone and in person or do they interview several times? What kind of questions do they ask?

8. Do I have to write a cover letter????? This is laziness more than anything and depends more on the job that i’m applying for. If it’s something that i’m passionate about, I will write my little heart out in a cover letter. If it’s a bleh, I just need a job i’ll take anything. To hell with it, I’m moving on.

9. As a social media obsessor and considering that it’s a huge part of what I do, I like to see the company engaging with its audience on social media. Are they re-tweeting? Replying? Mentioning? Are they commenting on customer concerns posted to their Facebook page? What’s the turn around time?

10. I’m not qualified enough. I’ll read through the entire ad thinking “I can do that”, “I can do that too!”, “Oh I got this!” then get to the bottom and they want 5 years of experience, 10 years of experience, 30 years of experience and I decide “Welp! Won’t waste my time with that! Now that i’m older, I think that I would actually apply to a position that required a certain number of years even if I didn’t have it. The only surefire way NOT to get a job? Is NOT to apply! But, it still is a deterrent.

11. It’s a strictly Sales Job disguised as Marketing, Advertising or Public Relations. That, my friends, is BEYOND irritating.

12. The job sounds boring. Granted, there will be instances at every job where it isn’t the most thrilling place to be, but sheer monotony would drive me absolutely bat “ish” crazy!
