The OP used the number '2' instead of 'do' to save bytes. All sounds the same...

Stingy fecker.

I call into a McDonald's almost every other day for no other reason than to help my self to the independent newspaper. (I don't actually buy anything when I'm in there)

I forget how much they actually cost now, but I see it as a waste of good money to pay for something that's technically 'free'

PS it really riles me lighting the stove with a paper I paid money for.

The newspaper should be on the euro saver menu.

I always wash the toilet tissue when I've finished with it.

Bloody awkward things to hang out on the clothesline though.

My brother is sitting on a small fortune due to an injury who got a lot of compo for. He's ridiculously stingy. His three-year-old phone broke, so instead of buying a new one he "borrowed" my mother's spare phone: one of those €10 Tesco ones.

Kinda reminds me of a friend of mine who supposedly got a LOT of money from an accident but has never said a word about it which is cool...But just to go on and on and on about how they have no money to pay the bills or barely enough to eat, while at the same time buying very expensive collectors items, new car, house done up, laptops, 2 xboxes in one day, you name it, they got it..
The final straw for me was when he asked me to drive a 60 mile round trip to buy a hoover. At the time i was only working part time so i genuinely had hardly any money trying to keep a car on the road and pay rent. I asked him for something towards petrol and he said no cos he was broke. (Might i add that i never ask for petrol but that week i was skint)...

Got to the electric shop and he bought the most expensive hoover in there for 500 euro. He opened his wallet and it was packed with 50s, must have been a few grand in there at least...
Needless to say he never got a lift off me anywhere again, id always have an excuse and we're not really friends anymore....
