A girl I work with helps herself to a 2L carton of milk from the canteen fridge everyday.


A friend of mine works in a clothes shop and when she was working she found a wad of cash in dollars. Her manager was nearby when she picked it up. She wanted it herself but had to put it at the customer service desk, so she gave her friend a vivid description of it by text (the chrome clip, a stained note) at lunch and her friend arrived and pretended to be the person who "lost it".
Her friend came in and claimer "her" cash and they got $500 each out of it.
No stinge here. Just plain stealing.

Did the person who lost $1000 not come looking for it?

I've often done that for a single item, but I just sling the cash down as I pass. Nothing to do with me if that screws up the automated stock figures as the item I took wasn't barcode scanned.

Your friend should look up "stealing by finding".

It's literally everything to do with you. Never mind though, that's someone else's problem to fix right?

I've often toyed with the idea of this but never actually done it so forgive me, but this is just a stingy thought as opposed to action..
When I'm at a chain supermarket store and the person in front of me at the checkout has a massive shop done and is asked by the cashier if they have a loyalty card and they say no.
I've a few times had to stop myself from 'offering' to take their points.

Got in a few bits and pieces to welcome them - few beers, some stuff for Irish breakfast, snacks etc. Picked them up from the airport and we planned to spend two days together. I had time off so took the opportunity to show then some nice scenic spots and traditional Irish venues for food, drink etc. Had to fill up the car. Fair few taxis around as we had drinks on both nights. Brought them back to the airport when they departed. They literally did not put their hands in their pockets once. Initially I thought it a bit odd but shrugged it off but by the end, I just couldn't believe them. No offer to even put a bit of petrol in the car. On the second night, they got home before us (there were five of us and partner and I had to wait for second taxi). When I got home, they had lashed into the wine etc. On the last night, we (4 of us including my partner) got a taxi home, and when we pulled up to the driveway I made a point of sitting after the meter was tallied and waited and waited... until it got really awkward and my partner paid. I juts couldn't believe them. On top of all that they moaned and groaned about wifi etc. and had the heating and hot water on constantly. Never again. Such stingebags. I didnt want payment from them but to not even pay their share of a taxi or meal/ drinks. I think our friendship has run it's course!

That was a tough read. The odd paragraph would have helped.

On the American thing,it seems to infect Irish people that emigrate over there too. I know someone who emigrated about 25 years ago. She lives in some God-awful scorching part of Arizona so comes home for about a month every year at the height of the Summer to get away from the heat. She brings her children and imposes on friends and relations. She then spends her time lounging around the house complaining about how cold Ireland is and insists on the heating being on full blast. One time, she used a house while the owners, (former!) friends of hers, were themselves abroad on holiday. She rang them while they were away saying the oil had run out and who did they use for deliveries. When the owners came home, they got a statement from the oil company looking for €200 for a delivery. She was long gone.

She is home again in the next week or two. Even relatives refuse to put her up now and she has to AirBnB it.

I lent my cousin €10,000 so he could have cosmetic surgery.

Now that I don't know what he looks like, I can't get my money back.

Got a phone call in the office, some random punter was looking to see if we had any promotional handwarmers that we could send him. He'd got some 2 years ago from us at an exhibition.
