Cheapskate

I dated Rick just once and what a disaster. He said he was taking me out to eat. Turns out, he had a coupon for a free small cheeseburger at a fast food place. We split it. He wouldn't even get a drink to go with it. Then, he took me to the movie theater where we sat in the parking lot looking at movie posters because "the price of movies is way too high." All the way home, he kept telling me little gems like if you use tape to fix your shoes, you can make them last for years and years. He had a good paying job too, but he was just so cheap!
