Happened to my bf when we were glamping. Lady came to the door with duck eggs and made it sound like a nice gesture. Handed them over and told him they were 25p each

My girlfriend (now wife) and I shared a flat with a couple where the guy would ask for the full price of his newspaper if you read it after him. Amongst many other tightarse actions, he also counted the slices of bread. We didn’t say there long.

A mate went out for a drink on Friday lunchtime with a colleague. They only had time for one, so my mate said he’d buy, the next Friday. On the Monday, his colleague phoned him up and said he’d just booked the next Friday off, so could he have the money for the drink he’d bought

Used to earn a living from rubbish dumps. New law forbade climbing into the tip to get things so I’d help people unload and sweep up. Most would then dump stuff I wanted in my van. One refused because he was dumping an old TV for a friend and wasn’t sure they’d want me to have it

On the way home from school, at the bus stop, my friend said ‘What’s that stuck to your shoe?’ – it was a tenner. She peeled it off my school shoe and spent it in the newsagents. On herself.

A roommate suggested we start a fruit bowl in the house. As broke as I was, I started buying a nice variety for our communal bowl. His contribution: apples (loser fruit in Canada). One day I’m vacuuming and beside his bed I see his personal stash of kiwi oranges bananas mangoes

When I became pregnant after taking the morning after pill my bf (who had paid for it) asked for half the money back …

My Uncle used to work at Harrods and was pretty senior there (merchandising and buying) so he used to give us designer perfumes as Christmas presents. They were the testers from the counter – no lid and often half-used.

Bought our first actual house off a yorkshireman who unscrewed the loo roll holder then came round after we’d moved in to try and sell it to us.

Previous owners of my house took the (fitted) carpets up when they moved out. Despite the carpets being of no use to them at all, they took them anyway because “those carpets were new, why should you get to have them?”

I asked my aunty to braid my hair when we were on holiday. I was 8. It took her about an hour. Then she told my mum I owed her £10 out of my holiday spending money.

When I was a kid, I collected snowglobes. My friend’s Dad had a Star Trek snowglobe which I thought was cool. After weeks of negotiating via my friend, her Dad sold it to me for £4. I was 9. Was 15 years ago now and my parents still aren’t over it.
