For the good of mankind, I beg of you.

Aunty ah...

The fridge is so huge that I can chop you into cubes and fit you inside.

You want company? Why don't I chop your daughter into pieces and fit her inside too?

For goodness' sake I'm only taking up less than 25% of the fridge and you're complaining that I buy too much of crap?

You're the only one doing all the groceries shopping so I guess it wouldn't make me Albert Einstein to assume that EVERYTHING in the fridge is yours.

I'm not invading your space, you are the interloper.

And no, I do not want to go out every night (like you) to buy 1 drumstick and 1 can of beans just so that I can cook 1 drumstick and 1 can of beans tomorrow.

I buy more to keep so that I don't have to make bloody frequent trips to Safeway.

Basic economics aunty, opportunity costs.

I don't fuckin' mind sacrificing freshness in drumsticks but I do mind sacrificing my time and energy to walk out into the dark and all the way to Safeway (not to mention the cold weather) just to buy chicken drumstick.

So when I DO my shopping, rest assured, I'll use up my 25% of space and you won't have room to invade until my groceries are depleted.

Therefore, QUIT whining already!

Bloody hell I don't mind doing that small portions thingy IF I have a bloody car. But then again if I have a car here I wouldn't buy small amounts with that lovely space in the boot calling to me. YC here btw.

Ok I come your place mid year and see how sad it is xD.

well actually compared to my other friends, mine is pretty cheap: 110AUD. well i wouldnt say that she is frugal. that would mean that she's smart!

she's just dim-wittedly tightfisted. the things that she should be saving on, she doesn't really care. money that's worth spending, she'll be a bitch about it. if i were to elaborate on everything here, the list would go on and on and on and on and on and on and on and on and on............

btw, siapa sc? u're not soo ching r u?
