OK, so you hear the word "geezer" and you immediately think "miser". That is not necessarily the correct assumption. Not even with me.
Though I am very, ah, frugal, I don't believe that I deserve the harsher term. My wife hates to go shopping with me, since I am the one that makes a face or rolls my eyes whenever something else gets submitted for purchase approval. I'm the fun-killer.
But I'm not the cheapest person I have heard tell of. I know a guy who went to New Jersey to visit relatives. He went into the bathroom and noticed the shower curtain rod had about 4 or 5 little strings draped over it, drying. When he asked his brother-in-law, the guy said with a straight face, "That's dental floss, you know you can re-use that stuff..."
Now that's cheap.
Please relate your tales of cheapness in the comments.
I'll post them in an update. Just to make myself feel better, really.
