Talk about cheap!
There is nothing worse than cheap parents. Ok, well a few things are worse, but growing up with cheap parents can be pretty difficult. Sometimes it’s funny… I once went to the movies with my dad and he convinced the ticketer that he needed one child’s ticket and one senior citizen ticket. I was 20 at the time. Hey, it worked! Sometimes parents can go to extremes in order to save money, and these stories are proof. People on Reddit reveal what it was like living with cheap parents and all the horrible things they experienced growing up.
When my dad moved into his house, he had a guy come over to do a free demonstration for a water filter that goes under a sink. The guy used a bar of soap for his demonstration and left it when he was done. My dad called at least 4 other companies for a free demonstration just to keep the free bar of soap, and never intended to have a water filter installed.
He does things like this, and it gets worse as he gets older. But I just let him do his thing. (freepieces)
Bro gave it away
My mother tried to convince ticket seller that I was 6 years old (actually 12) and my brother 12 years old (actually 19) to save 6 bucks for a hop in hop off bus ticket. Needless to say my mother did not get the reduced price. Especially because of the reason my brother was smoking a cigarette. (Moorycc)
I had a friend whose divorced dad would be “in control” of her tampons. He would give her a tampon every 8 hours. She couldn’t get one any earlier than that. Once her mom found out, her mom sent her to her dad’s with boxes of tampons that she had to hide from her dad.
Apparently her dad thought that females waste tampons and don’t use them properly? It was weird. (SinfullySinless)
