the few girlfriends I've had who were comfortable enough to pee in front of me would spin the roll for TP like they were on the Price is Right showcase showdown. I can't even imagine how much more TP they used to take the Cosby Kids to the pool. I never wanted to witness that nor did they want me to either.

WarszawaScream: She claims that the hand-washing technique saves her a total of $6 a month.

Honey, if you can't afford six farking dollars a month for laundry, MOVE THE FARK OUTTA NEW YORK. You obviously can't farking afford to live here.

/I sometimes hand-wash stuff in the shower but that's like, A SWEATSHIRT. Not MY ENTIRE WARDROBE.


You forget what Updike said: "A true NYer believes that anyone not living in NY must be, in some sense, kidding."

/this also holds true for anyone who doesn't talk, think, act, dress, eat, walk, drive, work, play, or fark like a NYer

I really hate that crap too, and I'm a woman. STOP WASTING THE FARKING TOILET PAPER.

They had toilets like that in Turkey. Nothing like flushing during the winter and having your delicate parts blasted with freezing water.

I'm considering switching to "Uncle Sawtooth's Pulp-enriched Arseboard" brand. Maybe a few splinters will convince the rest of my family that a tree doesn't need to die for the sake of a log.

That's it. She has totally ruined Asians for me. Well, at least the Chinese.

Haven't you guys seen the commercials? We're all supposed to be using, at minimum, both toilet paper and wet wipes for our bums now. And girls, don't forget that you have some extra plumbing that may need a little freshening.

I'm ahead of the curve, and I've equipped all my bathrooms with the very best ass-cleaning equipment. Ten years from now, you'll all be wishing that you were clean like me.

The nice ones spray warm water.

I'll gladly spend the $6 a month to launder my clothes in my washer/dryer.

This woman deserves NO money as she obviously doesn't know what you do with it.

Gortex: I'm one of the cheapest, most frugal people there is...but wow.

not-so-CSB:
The best household money-saving tip I've come across is to actually plan your week's meals in advance, and buy only what you plan on eating (including leftovers for lunch). It saves on impulse purchases and cuts down on stuff going bad in the fridge.


That's a great habit we do ourselves...also avoids the whole "What'll we have for dinner? Oh let's just eat out" behaviour. Eating out for us is an experience - not something we do just because we can't get organized.

sodomizer: Good for her.

Water and soap is probably cleaner than toilet paper anyway.

Washing clothes in the shower is efficient and she doesn't look dirty at all.

More people should follow her example.


YOU follow her example - when you're in full cheapskate mode - to the degree this woman is - I'll personally send a news-crew to document your story.

Ah, yes. The ever popular Ghetto Bidet. It also doubles as a DIY colonic.

Those of us who actually pay our own water bills can't easily follow her example, unfortunately. Washing on a garment-by-garment basis is ridiculously less efficient in the water department. But I am cheap enough that I reuse the dehumidifier to help out. In the washing machine.

I know it seems like Americans are "less clean" than cultures that use bidets, etc. but we take a gazillion showers. So I think it evens out.

I take at least one shower a day. I definitely take two if I workout any other time than first thing in the morning or if I perspire at all during the day. So, American bottoms get washed often even when people don't use flushable wipes/bidets.

Wet wipes work great and they don't spray ass bacteria all over the toilet.

AverageAmericanGuy: I'm probably in the minority here, but I don't think the problem is necessarily that she doesn't use toilet paper. There are plenty of cultures that wash after using the toilet, as crazy as that sounds to Americans.

Rather, I think the problem here is that she has no class, as evidenced not only by her actions but also by her use of language. "After I take a dump" is something I'd expect a punk teenager to say, not a grown woman. She is the lowest of the low and disgusting.

And to what end is she skimping to this degree? This seems self-imposed rather than a problem of income. At the end of the month, what is that 6 dollars she's saved going to do for her? Somehow she's gone off the rails and needs some serious help.


Indeed.

/it doesn't help her case that she looks like a $5 crack whore

so I guess your areas are clean and you get an o-face while you're at it?!?!? LUCKY!

KrispyKritter: AverageAmericanGuy: She is sick. These cable channels are milking these mentally ill people for all they are worth.

we can thank Morton Downey Jr for pioneering trash talk TV in the 1980's. there have been many since, some in disguise as otherwise but they too are exploiters. i cringe knowing what the rest of the world must think of americans when they see the content of our television broadcasts and the people on these shows.

---it's good to be a wise steward to your money. it's commendable to be frugal with your coin. it's another thing to go through life as a cheapskate.


Well, actually your TV is ridiculously puritanical. With the exception of recent cable shows like Deadwood and The Wire.

I was watching an episode of an old UK sitcom from the early 1960s a few days ago. Steptoe and Son. One of the lines old man Steptoe said after a nurse asked his son if he had been x-rayed before: "Yes you 'ave, two years ago when the 'orse kicked you in the cobblers. It's nothing to be ashamed of, you got over it didn't yer? He can still enjoy 'imself."

Youtube: Steptoe and Son - TB or not TB

This was free to air on the BBC in 1962 - a time when a husband and wife on a US sitcom were not even allowed to be shown to be in the same bed.

By the way, the equivalent to 'take a dump' in Australia is 'take a shiat'.

I've seen the videos for some of those fancy Japanese toilets. Definitely want one of those in my dream house.
