I'm so cheap that I've had a running 42 year battle with the most beautiful and understanding woman in the world over where to set the thermostat in the summer and winter.   It's come at a terrible emotional cost but my electric bill for an all-electric 3200 sq ft house is $170 a month so there's that to console me.

Unmitigated risk aversion is the new Puritanism; complete with witch hunts funny outfits and humorless preachers thundering doom. The Deity is Safety; Satan is a Lawyer; but the object is the same: to suck the life out of life and tell you how to live it.

A "cheap" emoji for a Guzzi site? Wouldn't that be redundant?

I am not really cheap, I just suffer from a rare ailment, fundsalow. But , I will gladly buy a lightly used item rather than new, anytime. I've almost gotten used to my new partial. LOL

A TRUE Guzzista wouldn't invest in a toothpick.  He'd recycle the plastic nozzle tube from the WD40 can after puncturing the bottom to get at the last of the oil.

 A true Guzzista would make his own WD 40 from fish he or she caught using a tree limb and a cork bobber made from an old wine bottle found in a dumpster , a hook made from an old safety pin , and a piece of old bread as bait .

A TRUE Guzzista would marginally enhance a hole in the beach and wait for the tide to cycle.  All that corking and tree limb stuff cuts into one's loitering time.   :rolleyes:

at a football game when everybody gives 3 cheers...Guzzista gives two

when the brakes go out on the Guzzista's car he/she drives all over the road trying to hit something inexpensive...

when the Guzzista's kids aren't looking at anything he makes them take their glasses off !!  ROFLMAO

We're cheap , not lazy  :laugh:

 Dusty

A TRUE Guzzisti knows that loitering and lazy are not the same thing.  Loitering is the revered, red-suspendered tao of energy conservation whilst awaiting opportunity, enlightenment, and free beer.  We train for that trifecta.  We commit to it.  Lazy is sleeping in when there's riding to be done, or looking for a hotel after only 6 hours of sleet and twisties.  That doesn't take any training or commitment. 

But even with apostolic dedication, proper loitering takes years to perfect.  That's why you see so many successful loiterers starting as teenagers.  They achieve one or maybe two of the trifecta, but gains are slow and imperfect, with many hidden speedbumps along the way.  But if they apply themselves diligently, decades of dedication later they will be every bit as proficient at the tao as any one of us.
