Lemme tell yah about cheap:
I had a BF who was very wealthy, owned 2 houses, and a co-op on Central Park in NYC, no mortgages on any of them. But he would never go to a place to eat that didn't offer discount coupons that he had collected. I will never go to a Pizza Hut again.
One time he went back to NYC for 6 weeks for some acting jobs, while I stayed at his house. His agent was sending his checks back to his home, that I was instructed to deposit in person with his personal banker.
So I go to the bank, and see this VP, who takes the first check, enters it at his desk computer in his office, and spins the monitor around for me to confirm the transaction. OMG!!! This guy had more cold cash than God, plus I knew he had a big investment portfolio, and all that real estate. But he drove a decrepit, barely-running pickup truck, and had me do his "glossies" for him because he was too cheap to pay for a professional photographer in a studio.
Eventually we broke up, and a few years later he was living most of the time back in his NYC co-op. We remained friends, and he invited my current BF & me to fly out and stay with him for a week.
We flew in right after a bad snowstorm & cold snap in January. And he told us to look for lost gloves in the snow piles on the sidewalks, because he collected them! And to prove his point, he opened a kitchen door to a staircase, sorta like an inside fire escape from the 16th floor, and on the steps there he had about 50 gloves spread out to dry!
Most were "orphans" but sometimes he would find a complete pair. And he wanted us to scrounge the sidewalks for him! Now my current BF was a multi-millionaire himself, and he was horrified at the prospect. But oddly enough, once we did come across a lost glove on the sidewalk, and my BF dutifully brought it back with us, perhaps as a guest's obligation, I dunno. But I certainly never did.
Oh, and did I mention that this first guy bought all his clothes used at yard sales & flea markets, even his UNDERWEAR? He even took my boxers when I had worn them out. A millionaire! Drove me crazy.
