My wife used to work with a woman whose husband charged her petrol money for giving her a lift to work, even though he was driving that way to his workplace anyway.

Friend invited me to pub, then said they had no money at all, so I bought them drinks all night. Then they got hungry, and it turned out they could afford to order chips. When they arrived they went and sat a a different table, so I wouldn’t ‘be tempted to have one, I’m hungry’.

I once shared a house with a girl who got a lather lamp. She decided to put it in the living room. One evening while we were all just sitting around she casually asked us to all chip in for a replacement bulb, as in her opinion we were all enjoying it. Bulb hadn’t even gone!

14. (“Black cabbie” as in, drives an infamous London Black Taxi.)
My grandad was a black cabbie for a while. Gave my mum a lift home because 3-year-old me had new shoes on that rubbed and I had bleeding blisters.
He put the meter on

My dad goes through old calendars which haven’t been used (which we get from like poundland anyway) crosses out all the days of the week and rewrites the correct ones for the new year so we don’t waste it https://t.co/IQ8VU0F30Y

My friend once said she was buying me and our other friend a round of shots. She bought one shot and made the barman divide it into 3 shotglasss.

Another time she also got bored after only doing half a set of eyelashes, still tried to charge her full price and then a week later had the audacity to tell her she needed to pay for infills if she wanted them finished.

An aunt and uncle—my godparents—didn’t get me a gift for Chanukah because I, at 5 years old, had made gifts for them instead of buying them something. If I didn’t spend money on a gift why should they. They called to let us know.

Out with a friend – As I got up to go to the bar (my round) he said – “I’ve still half a pint left, just give me the money instead”. Also, he once counted how many chips he had left before going to the toilet – Which I re-arranged on his plate to look as though I’d eaten one. https://t.co/GDrvRKJx7j

I was once 1p short to buy a coffee from the machine at work (had 29p, needed 30p.) Asked around if I could borrow a penny. Colleague said he only had a 5p piece. He then proceeded to drop the 5p into my hand and TAKE BACK 4p IN CHANGE!
