I heard myself described as cheap the other day.
And it happened when I was being described in a actually derogatory way by someone who wasn’t aware I was within earshot.
Those can often be such revealing moments. I remember being there in a zone controlled Heating, Ventilation as well as A/C spot in of our offices wondering about the statement. And it made myself and others reconsider the opinion a bit over the next day or so. While I am definitely thrifty, I wouldn’t have described myself as thatcheap. I’m honestly not a fan of waste. For example, I program my temperature control at a modern home in order to not waste resources as well as to save money. The temp control is programmed to allow the temperature to rise inside my modern home while we are in the peak heating minutes of the day. Once we are all heading home, the temp control is programmed to start reducing the temperature to a lower, more comfortable temperature and cooling number. That said, does this make myself and others cheap? I think of being cheap in a much odder way. Take the Heating, Ventilation as well as A/C component again for example. All of us belong to an annual Heating, Ventilation as well as A/C repair plan. And if they told myself and others that I needed a certain Heating, Ventilation as well as A/C repair in order to take better care of the Heating, Ventilation as well as A/C unit, I’d simply make the appointment. A cheaper guy would find the cheapest repair alternative and hope for the best. So I think there is a very clear distinction between thrifty and cheap. But I will for sure be on the lookout for any other behaviors that are considered cheap. That’s honestly not the vibe that I’m looking to put out there.
