Frugal Weirdness

November 25th, 2015 at 04:19 pm

OK, so I get it, I am a frugal weirdo and I am going to tell you why. Yesterday, I stopped by cousins house to drop off something. My cousin was busy cleaning her kitchen and as she was washing some pots she walked away from the sink with the faucet wide open. She did this three times in the 10 minutes I was there. I wanted to shut the water off so badly and all I could think about was the money going down the drain. Mind you, I know I should've been worried about the waste of one of the most precious resources. I really had to hold myself back to not act upon my natural impulses.

Have you ever cringe at the wasteful habits of other people?

    That one would get to me too, for sure.

    Yes, my husband does that sometimes and I usually walk over and turn off the water. I agree with you!! I also keep my hot water heater turned off when we are not using hot water. (showers, dishwasher) We put a special switch in each house we build , so the hw heater can be easily turned off. NO ONE uses it, but me and my husband. Even the couples that only come to their vacation cabin once every few months, never turn the hot water heater off. I can't understand why? We make it so easy for them. The switch is right in the kitchen. (Of course, you can also turn it off at the panel box, but we try and make it easier)

    Oh, my husband also does that, too.

    I cringe at the same sort of things. At school the kids often let the faucet run or the water fountain run just for the fun of it and I usually lecture them on wasting water and costing the district money. You are not a weirdo!
