Are you the type to pinch pennies? What about spending hours at the shopping mall because you’re looking for the best deal? Maybe you’re the type to go couponing? It’s always good to save a few bucks, but there are some occasions when it’s inappropriate or flat out tacky to do so. These moments can not only embarrass you, but also embarrass the people around you. Here are some situations where you should avoid counting every single penny.
A night on the town
There’s nothing more annoying than getting all dolled up for a girls night, only to have that one friend bring the whole group down because they only want to spend a certain amount of money. It’s one thing if you just don’t have the money, but it’s a whole different story if you have the money and are just being cheap. You’re definitely not helping the situation by complaining about prices. In fact, the only one you’re helping is yourself. Do the group a favor and just stay home.
On a date
Most of you ladies are probably thinking, but wait a minute a gentleman should always pay the tab. In a perfect world, yes, your date would sweep you off your feet, spend lots of cash, and drop you off at home in a beautiful horse drawn carriage. Sorry ladies, welcome to the year 2012 where chivalry is dead, and men have no shame going “halfsies” on a date. Never go on a date broke. It’s best to be prepared in case you end up with the date from hell.
Getting your hair done
Don’t be the woman who goes out to get her hair done and comes back with a cheap weave. If you do, don’t be surprised if the word “ghetto” or “rachet” comes lingering your way. Being a bad hairstyle is just one of those things that if you can’t do it right, then you shouldn’t do it at all, and often the price you pay is on par with the finished product. Is it really worth sitting in a salon chair for hours only for you to come out looking like you sat there for minutes?
