Last week while shopping, I saw someone bend over in the parking lot and scrap gum off the ground and then proceeded to stick it into their mouth.

The former owner of my house never used hot water. When I called the gas company to change the account to my name, the representative told me he had never even opened an account with them.

Someone I knew in college refused to use toothpaste. He said it was a marketing gimmick and only brushing and flossing were necessary. He used his hair to floss his teeth. This person also never bought liquid milk. He bought bulk powdered milk so he could measure out exactly what he needed and not waste a drop.

My partner washes all the old plastic bags (zip locks, not the shopping kind). When her brother died and we went to open up his house, guess what there was? Drawers and drawers of plastic bags! Must be hereditary.
