I need to stop being so cheap with all of the purchases I make on a day to day basis.
It’s one thing to stop at a crappy fast food joint to get something off the value menu so you can get calories in your stomach for less cash.
However, you shouldn’t be taking your source of moveation to the cheapest mechanic you can possibly find. I lived through that situation more times than I would like to disclose over the years. I thought I was paying for brand current brake rotors to be put in my car, but he used outdated rotors with current brake pads & figured I wouldn’t find out. Needless to say, I never went back to this mechanic again & made sure to leave a drawback review on the internet. When I needed a current window air conditioning system for my partner’s attic art studio, I was being cheap & figured we could just go with whatever the cheapest model was available at the closest superstore, however this was a critical error. The cheapest window air conditioning system in Orland Park, IL also happened to be the loudest one, & I right away felt disappointing for my partner upon turning it on for the honestly first time. I knew that it would be a constant source of anxiety & annoyance so I put it back in the box & returned it to the store. There’s no sense in keeping a $300 machine if it’s too loud for normal, everyday use. Thankfully we found a better window air conditioning system that wasn’t nearly as loud while cycling. I should have obtained the better window air conditioning system from the start.
