People who are *CHEAP* NOT Frugal

Case in point: Travel. Do y’all know these people?

My calendar is BOOKED for the summer and I have three trips planned. One in August by myself, one in July for a friend’s birthday, and one on Memorial Day to help someone possibly stake out a move to Chicago.

Trying to plan the May & July trip with the rest of the parties has been a HEADACHE.

“I’m not trying to spend too much.”

“Yeah, if more people come it will be cheaper!”

The Chicago trip I can sort of understand— a quick weekend shouldn’t break the budget. But if you are traveling to a city you don’t know, you are going to spend money.

The July trip was originally to Miami, but was moved to Houston in part because of traveling costs. We are in line for an AirBnb with 1 shower for 5 people because “we want to keep it reasonable.” Why are we even going then if all you are going to do is whine about how much this costs and that costs? At dinner, cutting up the receipt at the table while we’re still out trying to enjoy ourselves because “I only ate this much and had one drink, so I am only paying.”

These people are no fun to plan travel with. You are going to spend money traveling, that is the point!

Yes, this is a rant, but y’all know who I am talking about!

Your story has become tiresome

OP, nobody can stop you from living above your means, but stop trying to get other people to live above theirs.

How annoying. One person pays, and if it's really that much of an issue, others can Venmo that person afterwards. What a headache for the servers.

Aren't YOU the cheap one, since you're sharing an Airbnb with multiple people? Are you still in college?

I once dated a guy who wore fake diamonds! Talk about tacky. We laughed at him on the yacht.

Wait. OP, you would actually have preferred to go to Miami in AUGUST? Not that Houston's much better...the problem I see is mainly with the destination choices, not with the budget.

I can sort of agree with OP here. Frugal is being responsible and going on a vacation or a getaway when you can afford it, otherwise decline all together.
