What is wrong about being frugal?

Yesterday, I posted a thread about frozen drinks on this forum and another Vegas forum. Some of the responses were very rude. People made fun of the fact that I was wanting to save a little money. What is wrong with that? They also made fun of the types of machines they think I will be playing. Yes, I like the nickel machines. I also play quarters and have put money in dollar slots. I have NEVER played the penny slots because we don't have them here. Not everyone who goes to Vegas has an unlimited bankroll. I have been saving for this trip for months like a lot of people do. Just because Iam not made of money doesn't mean that I deserve to be ridiculed by certain people in this forum!

This thread has clearly degenerated from the original topic but in regard to the original comment on "being frugal", I don't think there's necessarily anything wrong with it. I am definitely not frugal, but I like to take advantage of "bargains" when they can be had.

I have definitely seen people much wealthier than I am pull some of the most penny-ante moves I have ever seen in my life. I guess that's how they amass/keep their money. Everyone is different, depending on how you value your money. Personally, I want to enjoy myself more than worry about the nickels and dimes. But keeping track of the nickels and dimes may lead to more dollars in your pocket... Different philosophies but not really worth arguing about, is it?!

I know (or at least hope) most of you are just having fun with the silly comments! I enjoy a good laugh as much as the next guy but it sounds like it's getting personal!

That's the place where that BBQ guy Steven Raichlin rips off all those city folks that pay $3,000 or so a week to learn to cook on a Weber grille. What a bunch of chumps those guys are. I'll teach em all how to grille a really nice steak for a hundred bucks a head...
