    After a total of 2 hours of the train standing still, I am finally in Stuttgart and a little closer to my final destination!!!

    Deutsche Bahn can expect some anthrax letter in their mail! *shakes fist*

    I hate people who cheap out on household necessity items just so they can use the trivial amount they saved on other more expensive, unnecessary luxury items. I'm willing to turn the other cheek when it comes to buying store brand food and stuff like that; Personally I think I have a tendency to spoil myself and buy the good stuff, as I prefer to not have my ice cream and cereal taste like the inside of a plastic bag, but hey, if you wanna eat that stuff, that's your prerogative.

    When it comes to toiletries, do yourself, your house guests and society a favor and don't buy the stuff that comes with some nonsensical bundle deal (Buy 1, get 99 free!) or is possible to be paid for in small change. No one should be forced to endure wiping their ass or cleaning their body with something store brand crap just because you want a new iPod or a nicer car. You owe it to yourself to have the good stuff. And if you are going to be a cheap bastard about it, forewarn people you're a frugal bastard so they can either know to bring their own stuff from home, or go outside and yank a leaf off a tree, because I'd rather wipe my ass with a magazine than that crap you had in your house. And your soap? I take multiple showers a day so I can smell like I've been either climbing the Rockies, doing manual labour in a Vanilla scented field in Ireland, or water skiing in The Everglades, not so I can emerge from the shower smelling worse than when I went in. I do not want to come out smelling like a crowded grocery store line, a wet dog, or like a child's muddy shoe that's been left outside for the weekend.

    My exes ESTJ mother was a hoarder, I mean she always had two of every generic cleaning product and cheap economy toilet paper.

    Even the ISTJ guy who I talk to a lot now, who is very fond of nice things, always says he'd rather have quality over quantity. You know, a few items of designer clothing, then cheap black tee shirts...bitches about how much his mother goes out to eat when she has food in the fridge...yeah...

    You know what just frys my guts? I'm paying north of $3.60 a gallon for fuel and when I get out to clean my damned windows the assholes that run the station can't be bothered to put a little soap or windshield washer fluid in the squeegee water. Seriously? This is going to make or break the damned station to give away a little cleaner? I'm trying to scrape the desicated corpses of a pound of foogin bugs off my windshield with just WATER!?

    Assholes.

    Interesting. My mother wasn't whom inspired my original post, but I do recognize some of what you were talking about in reference to her. To me, her spending habits always seemed a bit arbitrary; In some areas she pretty much barred no expense (clothing, cars, house hold items), yet in others she's extremely frugal (entertainment & recreational stuff). Like, even now, sometimes we'll have a family dinner at a really nice restaurant for no special occasion at all, yet in spending in areas that's not really necessary or that costs spent wouldn't be noticeable to an outsider, her focus is on saving & efficiency.

    There's always a method to it, the idea is if we save and save on this and that, we can have THIS BIG THING. And that's cool I mean my life with my grandparents was always super stable, and same with my exes mom, his parents house ran like clockwork and everything needed was always there and totally stable, and then there would be extra money for things like buying me a leather jacket for Christmas...his mom could be stingey and strict in one way, and then really extravagant, sort of like my grandfather, but in a different way. My exes mom didn't care about cars at all and drove an old jeep, but she pinched pennies so that they could have those gold plated pots and pans, Italian tile in their house and she could go out and buy DVDs and bags of candy when we were hanging out there.

    My ISTJ just decided a new car was a bad investment and that a condo would be better, and explained his logic. He applies his logic mostly to having really nice lasting things of quality while being frugal with smaller or temporary things.

    I hate to admit it, but I'm the opposite. LOL.

    On the phone, my brother asked my Mom if he could talk to my recently-dead Grandma... if she wasn't too weak.
