Cheapness - An 'Old Coot' Disease
Somebody was recently lamenting to me the plight of their poor father.
The guy is in his 80s and dying of cancer.
Despite having over $1 million in the bank the guy carries on like a complete destitute bum.
In fact he dresses so poorly that out in public one day someone charitably GAVE HIM $5.
And guess what....HE TOOK IT!
Also, again despite being on his deathbed and having means, the crazy 'old coot' won't pay for home internet access because of a silly price dispute with the cable company. Instead he trucks everyday over to the library to check his email (AOL?).
The purpose of money in life is, well,....life! Tragically some of these misers never figured that out.
